Biennial Summit will bring together change agents committed to shaping a stronger, more vibrant and resilient Rhode Island
In the two years since our last Power of Place Summit, Rhode Island has experienced some very positive developments. Our economy is stronger, cranes are once again on the downtown skyline, our quality of place is the subject of numerous magazine articles and new companies and industries are choosing our state as a place to locate, create jobs and grow.
Rhode Island’s federal, state, and local elected leaders, along with Grow Smart RI and many other private and public sector community stakeholders, have all played a role in shaping a quality of place that’s attracting people and business. But, while the revitalization momentum of our Capital City is impressive, we must redouble our efforts to help create the conditions for accelerating the revitalization of our other urban and town centers from Woonsocket to Westerly.
That’s why we invite you to join with 500 business, civic and elected leaders, development and real estate professionals, architects, builders, farmers, conservationists, and policy experts from across the region to learn from one another about what’s working when it comes to shaping places where people and business can thrive.
