From the Downtown Providence website:
The Jewelry District Association and The Providence Foundation invite you to an “Open House” to Discuss Your Ideas for the Future Development of the Jewelry District and the Old Harbor Area.
You are invited to “drop by” anytime during 4:00pm to 9:00pm and talk to The Cecil Group, a planning consultant, along with members from the Jewelry District Association and The Providence Foundation. There will be a short presentation by The Cecil Group at 7:00pm, but feel free to come by at anytime.
The Jewelry District Association’s monthly meeting will be held at 6-7pm in an adjacent room at the Children’s Museum. Chris Placco will present Johnson & Wales new institutional master plan. (PLEASE NOTE that this time is one hour later than the usual JDA meeting time.)
The “Open House” is the first in a series of public meetings to be held as part of a planning and communication effort to identify key issues, opportunities and expectations for future development, open space and public infrastructure improvements. The Jewelry District Association and The Providence Foundation are sponsoring this effort with the hopes of developing a widely-shared understanding of how these goals can be achieved. This effort can assist the City in its Comprehensive Planning Process, including the neighborhood charrette for this area that will be held in 2008, and can provide valuable input into potential development projects.
We hope that you can join us. If not, please feel free to contact any of the following with your thoughts and questions:
