SECTION 34-4-25

   § 34-4-25  Invalidity of certain

restrictive covenants. –

Since many mentally retarded and mentally disabled individuals are able to live

in the community with some assistance, it is the public policy of the state of

Rhode Island to establish community residences in residential areas. Therefore,

any restrictive covenant or other private legal impediment which directly or

indirectly prevents or restricts the establishment of licensed community

residences as defined in § 40.1-24-1 for eight (8) or fewer mentally

retarded or mentally disabled persons shall be void and unenforceable as to

those community residences.
