Head of the Bay event set for Monday

Things are heating up for the future of the land being made available by the I-195 relocation, as we saw with the announcement this week of a related partnership between the state and the city. In related news, David P. Riley and some other advocates have long called for maximizing public access to the land that will be available for fresh uses. A program on the subject is et for Monday:

Making a Special Place at the Head of the Bay Placemaking Workshop

Monday, April 7, 2008, 3 -7 pm, Radisson Hotel (foot of Gano St.)


Please join an interactive workshop led by the Project for Public Spaces (PPS) to imagine a future for the last expanse of shoreline open to the public in Providence, at the head of Narragansett Bay.  Join planners, stakeholders, and citizens concerned about the fate of the former Shooters nightclub for a presentation of what makes waterfront public spaces work in other cities, a placemaking exercise, and a brainstorming session to create a vision that makes the most of India Point’s unique geography and panoramic views and ensures public access to our most distinctive natural and historic asset.


Free and open to the public. Pre-registration required.    

Space limited to 100.  

Please call 831-5995 x712 with your name & phone number. 

Sponsored by Head of the Bay Gateway and Friends of India Point Park. Led by Ethan Kent from PPS.
