October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The North Main Street Corridor Study Virtual Community Meeting previously planned for Monday, September 13th has been postponed until Monday, October 4th 2021 at 6:00 PM. This meeting will take place via Zoom and pre-registration is required. You can register for the meeting by visiting https://bit.ly/northmainpresentation. At this meeting, you will (virtually) meet the City and consultant team leading the study, learn about the North Main Street Corridor Study process and timeline, and have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback about how to make North Main Street a more active and vibrant place.
What is the North Main Street Corridor Study?
In August 2021, the City of Providence in partnership with Councilperson Nirva LaFortune contracted Principle Group (a planning consultant) to conduct a corridor study for North Main Street. The Study will focus on the entire length of North Main Street from Downtown to the Providence-Pawtucket border. The goals of the study are to: analyze existing conditions; develop and assess alternatives with conceptual costs for different combinations of streetscape improvements, bicycle and pedestrian improvements; study development opportunities on vacant and underutilized parcels to complement further transportation investments; study the feasibility of a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district and potential revenue; examine existing residential and commercial market conditions and needs; and identify strategies to encourage the type of development the community would like to see along the corridor to improve quality of life for neighborhood residents. This study will build upon past plans and more recent work that has been done by various parties to develop a cohesive, implementable strategy for North Main Street that will guide city departments and state agencies and inspire private investment.
