Greater City Providence

Demolition Bonds

Head over to the Daily Dose to see what Rep. Segal is up to lately.

Of special interest to readers here, is the Demolition Bonds Bill:

H7584 would allow cities and towns to require demolition bonds and other assurances from developers that want to tear down historic buildings, and is inspired by the rash of demolitions in downtown Providence over the course of the recent boom years | none of which have yielded the promised new developments.

I’ll have more info when I get a chance to chat with Rep. Segal about it.
