Broad Street between Public and Potters
Event info on Facebook[/alert]
Come out for a temporary demonstration event and celebrate Broad Street! This is a unique opportunity for community members to learn more about City Walk and experience it for a day.
The #CityWalkPVD Demonstration Day on Saturday, June 16th will feature:
- Ground murals by local artists Lisa Perez, Tamara Diaz, and Dana Heng!
- Pedestrian enhancements and a temporary two-way protected bike lane on Broad Street!
- Temporary public plazas at Broad/Public and Broad/Daboll!
Be sure to stop by Public Street between Daboll and Broad streets at 1:30 PM on Saturday, June 16th for a special surprise from Sokeo Ros and the Laotian Community Center of RI!!
By documenting community response to temporary changes during the June 16th City Walk Demonstration Day, community input will directly influence more permanent changes to Broad Street as part of City Walk in Summer 2019.
City Walk is part of a citywide Urban Trail initiative that will: strengthen connections between Providence neighborhoods, parks, and civic institutions; improve safety for people traveling by all modes; and celebrate the diversity and culture of Providence neighborhoods through public art, wayfinding and interpretive signage, landscaping, and vibrant public places. The City of Providence has secured over $2.3M to design and construct initial phases of City Walk along Clifford Street in Downtown and Pine, Friendship, and Broad streets in South Providence in 2019.
