    I’m wondering what other towns except as documentation to allow part of a property to become OS?
    Thank you.

    Hi Carmen. I have a form requesting to be placed in the OS program. If they want to benefit from the 10 or 20 percent value adjustment, they must provide a soil map. Otherwise, just my local application is used and they get the 30% market value. Hope this helps.

    Jamestown has a form for them to fill out. We follow similar guidelines to Tiverton. let me know if you want a copy of the form.

    Charlestown has an application for just Open Space too. Although, I “encourage” the applicant to apply for Farm or Forest first before filing the Open Space application.

    For open space slight @ 30%, I will approve it if they apply.
    If they want moderate or severe, I require a soil map.
