Woonasquatucket Vision Plan | City of Providence

Advisory Group Member
City of Providence
Department of Planning

2017 – 2018

The City of Providence, in partnership with the community, is preparing a vision plan for the area along the Woonasquatucket River from Paragon Mills to Providence Place Mall– including portions of the City’s Olneyville, Valley, and Smith Hill neighborhoods. Funded by a brownfields grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency, the City of Providence will work with community partners to plan for thoughtful redevelopment of polluted industrial sites to stimulate economic development that benefits Providence residents, and strengthen environmental and social resilience in the Project Area. The Vision Plan will be used to guide and prioritize the many investments planned and underway in the Project Area, determine other needed investments, visualize what desirable reinvestment looks like, and advocate and secure resources for implementation.
