The map, plat, and lot for a specific property is an individual identification for a parcel in Town. There are 3 sets of numbers which identify a parcel (ex. 001-015-235 OR 1-15-235).
There are a few ways the map, plat and lot can be found for a property. One way is to find the parcel on the Town's GIS website. Another way is to enter the Northeast Revaluation database for East Greenwich and enter the address of the property. If you are still having trouble, you can e-mail the Planning Department and we will provide you with the answer.
The zoning of parcel or lot can be located on the tax maps in the Maps & GIS section of the website.
The set-backs of a property are zone-specific and can be found in the "Dimensional Regulations by Zone" document.
