Message from Town Administrator

Gary Ezovski



By all accounts the efforts of all who organized and volunteered to take part in the 16th Annual Clean and Green Day created another great success. Add to that the continuing effort by volunteers who have been cleaning our historic cemeteries and the message is clear that the people who are North Smithfield are even willing to complete back-breaking work with the only reward being pride in their community and the appreciation of the DPW personnel who support them. Over 400 volunteers picked up enough debris from all corners of town last Saturday to fill a 30 yard container and almost 50 adults and scouts have cleared small trees and brush from fifteen historic cemeteries over the past ten months. 


Every town is just a place until people claim it as their home. Town Council President Beauregard and I, along with the DPW team, offer our thanks to everyone who continues to do their part in these collaborative efforts. People working together produce great results.






A first draft of the Comprehensive Plan amendment is nearing completion and will soon be reviewed by the Town Council and the public. The following survey will be used to gauge public opinion on general goals and policies within the plan. We encourage you to complete the survey and participate in the planning process. Click here for a complete copy of the draft plan on the Planning Department page of the Town’s website.

The Town of North Smithfield has hired Northeast Revaluation Group LLC to conduct a statistical update to bring all real estate in town to fair market value effective December 31,2018 for the July 2019 tax roll. The process is mandatory according to RIGL 44-5-11.6. The law requires these statistical updates every 3 years and a full revaluation every 9 years.


Throughout the project Northeast Revaluation’s staff will be in neighborhoods throughout the town. The company will attempt to physically visit, measure and inspect properties that sold over the last 2 years, which helps in the analysis of determining fair market value. They also will be visiting any properties that have unfinished construction or have taken out building permits recently. All employees are required to carry identification and have their vehicles on file with the assessor’s office and police department. The process will last over the next several months and be completed in the spring of 2019. If there are questions or concerns contact the Assessor, Sarah Frew, 401-767-2200 ext 323 or Northeast Revaluation Group directly at 401-737-0300. Thank you for your patience throughout the process.






Emergency Preparedness for Citizens Living with Disabilities

Residents can participate by holding an individual or multi-family yard sale at their homes. When they register with the Town Clerk, their location will be listed on the Town Web Site and in publicity, so that interested shoppers will have their location.
