Smithfield Historic Preservation Commission Historic Home Marker Program

 

The Town of Smithfield Historic Preservation Commission is offering a Historic Home Marker program for homes and properties that are listed on our Historic Inventory. We are proud to offer this program to recognize the historic buildings in our town and celebrate our rich history. The plaque is an 11×16 inch oval, with a decorative molded edge, made of a durable and weather resistant PVC material. The plaques are painted slightly off white, silk screened with black borders and lettering, featuring a green town crest. All building names and dates are hand painted in black paint by a local Rhode Island Artist.

Any building appearing on the Smithfield Historic Inventory will have an application reviewed. If your building does not appear on the inventory, and you feel this is an error, please contact the SHPC and we will address this issue. The Smithfield Historic Inventory can be found online here.

The Smithfield Historic Preservation Commission is a not-for-profit Town Commission. The debut of this Historic Marker Program was a great effort by the Smithfield Historic Preservation Commission over the last year. The commission strives to provide the residents of Smithfield with markers of the highest quality available, while keeping the cost born to the applicants at the lowest possible price point. This was made possible by the generosity of a local benefactor, who donated funds to cover the bulk of silk screening the markers, while a local company in Smithfield was kind enough to cut the raw material into beautifully routed ovals at no cost. The fee of $35.00 (thirty five dollars) paid by each applicant goes directly toward covering the materials cost and for the artist who will be hand painting the name and appropriate date on your marker.

New Online Boards & Commissions Database

The Town of Smithfield is pleased to announce that the new OnBoard Board & Commission Management Solution System is now available on the Town’s website to facilitate public engagement through our vendor, ClerkBase. Boards and Commissions are an important part of the Town’s governance, as they focus on specific areas of interest. OnBoard allows you to see who is currently serving on a Board or Commission, how to contact them, the membership history of that board, and each member’s history on all boards.

With this new system Town residents can access this information without delay or inconvenience, should they want to volunteer, they can do so by checking the vacancies on various Boards or Commission.

As always it is important to allow our Town residents consistently new and updated technology.

Current information for all positions has been entered, historical information will eventually be entered into the system.
