A Citizen’s Guide to the Farm, Forest, and Open Space Act

Rhode Island law allows property enrolled in the Farm, Forest and Open Space Program to be assessed at its current use, not its value for development. The purpose of the law is not to reduce property taxes, but to conserve Rhode Island’s productive agricultural and forest land by reducing the chance it will have to be sold for development.

This publication summarizes the rules and regulations and is intended to serve as a guide for property owners interested in enrolling their property in the Program.
