Redeveloping Riverfront Public Meeting

January 17, 2013 - An initiative to redevelopment the Blackstone River area in Pawtucket and Central Falls has been underway since October and on Thursday, January 17, the first public meeting was held at the Blackstone Valley Visitor’s Center Theater to review the progress of the plan. The River Corridor Development Plan aims to develop an action-oriented plan for key parcels along the riverfront through an integrated approach considering transportation, market demands, historic preservation, connections, open space, gateways, and streetscape.

The presentation for the public included a photo tour of the major areas of development, data collection and analysis, and proposals for improvements and enhancements. The January meeting was the first of three public workshops to be held.
