Greater City Providence

Greater City Providence featured in Providence Business News


David Ortiz from Providence Business News attended our last Greater City: Exchange and sat down with Bret and I to talk about Greater City Providence, what we’re about, and what we hope to accomplish. The article [subscription required] appears in this week’s Providence Business News.

A new advocacy organization was launched last week that aims to promote cutting-edge urban planning and development practices in Providence and surrounding communities.

Greater City Providence will focus on transit, architecture, open space, zoning, and residential and commercial development issues in the capital city, said Jef Nickerson, the group’s president.

Don’t forget, our next GC: Exchange takes place on March 13th at Jewel Cafe & Lounge, 15 Elbow Street.
