Affordable homes are going up in North Kingstown. The North Cove development is a collection of 38 affordable rental homes just outside Wickford Village. Richard Godfrey, Executive Director of Rhode Island Housing, said there’s a demand for affordable housing outside the state’s urban core.
Residents and businesses in the North Kingstown area are invited to a free public meeting regarding the impacts of climate change, rising tides, and flooding in the coastal communities of Rhode Island.
Three more mosquito pools have tested positive for West Nile virus. The positive results were from mosquitoes trapped in the Smith Hill area of Providence, in the southern section of East Providence, and in central North Kingstown. All of the mosquitoes were of a species that feeds on birds and mammals.
The Department of Environmental Management says these findings are not unexpected this time of year.
