The mission of the Department of Zoning and Inspections is to ensure compliance with construction, zoning and nuisance codes and to protect public health, safety and welfare within the community.
The Department serves as a one-stop shop for land development review and regulations for building, housing, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, zoning (certificates, variances, special uses and historic) within the City of Newport.
The Historic Preservation division also provides support to the Historic District Commission.
Being a flood safe community means protecting our community and saving homeowners on flood insurance.
With the largest collection of colonial homes in the United States, Newport truly lives in its history. Caring for these historic properties is a community effort.
