In an October 19th joint letter, 9 Providence neighborhood, community, and business organizations have asked the city council to slow down the Comprehensive Plan process. The letter argues that:

  • The City Ordinance Committee and the full City Council should not pass, in any form, the proposed Comprehensive Plan until all neighborhood charrettes have been completed.
  • The DPD must take into account community feedback received at neighborhood charrettes and incorporate this feedback into any final document.
  • There is no need to rush passage of a new Comprehensive Plan as there are no negative legal or financial consequences to leaving the existing expired Comprehensive Plan in place.

The 9 groups who signed the letter are DARE, the Mount Hope Neighborhood Association, the Olneyville Neighborhood Association, the College Hill Neighborhood Association, the Mt. Hope Neighborhood Land Trust, the Summit Neighborhood Association, the West Broadway Neighborhood Association, Rhode Island Jobs With Justice, and the Providence Working Waterfront Alliance.
