-------------------------------

CoyoteSmarts is a public information initiative of a group of Rhode Island organizations that have come together to address the growing presence of coyotes on Aquidneck and Conanicut Islands—and in other communities throughout the state.

Civic engagement is an essential goal of the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission as we seek to keep Islanders informed and involved in policy- and decision-making that affects us all. The Smart Island Series of public forums plays a key role in this, gathering local and regional leaders to take part in panels and discussions on topics relevant to ensuring a smarter, cleaner, and healthier future for Aquidneck Island.
