2011 - Present
Creative Communities Exchange (CCX) 2011
The City of Providence & the RI Public Transit Authority were awarded $910,000 in federal funding through the Dept of Housing and Urban Development’s Sustainable Communities Challenge Planning Grant for Transportation Corridors to Livable Communities planning project. The three-year planning process seeks to accomplish 3 things: conduct corridor studies to increase the effectiveness & efficiency of transit service on the Providence bus routes with the highest ridership, to create community hubs at key nodes along those corridors, & to rethink the Providence Zoning Ordinance as a tool to implement the corridor plans & the City’s overall livability and sustainability goals.
