The Brown Daily Herald has an article about the October 1st City Ordinance Committee hearing and the Providence Working Waterfront Alliance’s opposition to proposed changes to the Comprehensive Plan:

The city’s comprehensive plan does not mandate specific guidelines, but once approved by the City Council, it will influence changes made to zoning codes. Employees of the oil and shipping industries fear that the recommendations for mixed-use development along the waterfront could lend support to zoning codes that encourage residential and commercial development at the expense of their heavy-duty oil and shipping businesses.
