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.
Our Inspections Division administers and enforces various building, housing, health, sanitation, and safety regulations mandated by City and State governments.
