- Shoreline Rights of Way
- As defined by Rhode Island's Sea Grant, a public right of way to the shore is a piece of land over which the public has the right to pass on foot, or if appropriate, by vehicle, in order to access the tidal waters of Rhode Island. These passages are critial to providing legal access to RI's and Cedar Tree Point's shoreline. Recognizing Cedar Tree Point's residents have already lost these valuable rights of way in the recent past and that several of our other local passages are in danger of being lost if not protected, a committe was formed to help identify and document existing rights of way within Cedar Tree Point and surrounding areas. Please
Carol Fritz at 401-339-4066 or Andrea Souza at 401-738-6343 for more information or to express your concerns about preserving and protecting shoreline access in Cedar Tree Point. Your participation is necessary to move forward on this important topic.

is continued need. To report that may not already be listed, please contact the folks at Clean The Bay at 401-741-8749 or 401-413-3236. They can use
