Greater City Providence

Did TPG know Jen Cole was on her way to town?

No sooner did Jen hop on her broom to fly up to Providence, then I see that TPG is planting trees at the Public Safety Building Memorial Parking Lot™.

Now in all seriousness, let’s give credit where credit is due. Sue LaPidus from the Downtown Neighborhood Alliance has been on the case getting TPG to abide by the landscape requirements here for some time. Big thanks to Sue and the DNA for taking on this issue and most importantly, getting results!
