West Side Master Plan - Aquidneck Island, RI

Mason & Associates assisted the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission (AIPC) in the development of a West Side Master Plan for the Island. This involved meeting with a task force to develop project criteria and alternative land use scenarios. Public work sessions were also organized to educate the public about the project, brainstorm new ideas, and get public input on the criteria and land use scenarios. Mason & Associates also compiled existing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data for the AIPC and created original coverages, including detailed maps for the three land use scenarios. Throughout the development process, Mason & Associates helped the AIPC to meet their specific objectives, including the achievement of the Shared Island Vision by incorporating the four elements, A Livable Landscape, Social Well Being, Alternative Modes of Transportation, and Strong Economy, into the planning process.
