Clean Ocean Access hosts an open forum on changing lateral legislation for shoreline access in RI on June 27th, 2022

PORTSMOUTH, RHOSE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Join us in an open forum on changing lateral legislation on shoreline access in Rhode Island on Monday, June 27th at 6:00 pm.

About This Event

Public use of the shoreline has been an integral part of life around Narragansett Bay dating back to before the chartering of Rhode Island in 1663. While the state constitution preserves the “privileges of the shore” for all Rhode Islanders, a decades-old court decision causes confusion for both the public and coastal property owners about where, exactly, the public can exercise their shoreline rights.

Join us in a conversation about defining the legislation of coastal access in order to clarify this existing constitutional right.
