Guidelines for Submitting Public Records Requests

Welcome to Southern Rhode Island Conservation District's public records request page.

Open Record vs. Public Record

All records created by public bodies are public records, but not all public records are open to the public. RI General Law § 38-2-2 identifies which types of records are not considered open records.

Processing an APRA request with SRICD

Public Information Officer: Gina Fuller

Contact Info: or 401-661-5761 or by mail to:

SRICD 9 East Ave Unit F Westerly, RI 02891, or complete the following form (on the website).

You are not required to provide identification or any personally identifiable information when requesting a document.

The agency must fulfill your request electronically, by fax or by mail as you request, unless complying with that preference would be unduly burdensome.

The agency has 10 business days from the date they receive the request to respond at which point they will either provide the records, request a 20-day extension, or inform you that they do not have the records you requested. In the process of requesting an extension, the agency may provide an itemized invoice of what the retrieval will cost.

In accordance with the Access to Public Records Act (APRA) of Rhode Island, we are committed to providing transparency and facilitating access to public records. To request records, please fill out the Public Records Request Form below. Ensure that you provide specific details regarding the records you are seeking to facilitate a timely and accurate response. We aim to process requests promptly, and in compliance with the APRA guidelines.  Thank you for your commitment to open government, and we appreciate your understanding as we work to fulfill your request.
