Setting a Sparkling Example for Providence
Placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1985, Providence's historic Jewelry District is poised on the verge of a bright new future as a dynamic live/work neighborhood. It has the rich architectural heritage of a once thriving manufacturing area. And thanks to the relocation of an Interstate highway, it now offers walkable links to Downcity and new land where expansion is underway.
Jewelry District Association
The JDA is dedicated to fostering a sense of community that will encourage thoughtful development of this new land. The JDA believes that a respect for the past and a focus on creating a walkable, bikeable, livable environment will help make our district welcoming for business and residents alike.

Seth Yurdin Resigns
Ward 1 Providence City Councilman Seth Yurdin recently announced his resignation from the Council, necessitating a Special Election to choose a replacement. For 13 years, Seth has represented the Jewelry District, Fox Point and parts of Downtown and College Hill.
He has been a good friend to the Jewelry District and has worked with us on a number of issues. From helping us with appearances before the Board of Licenses about out-of-control night clubs, to vehemently voting against the Council's approval of the Fane Tower, Seth has been there for us.
The Special Election to replace him will be within 90 days (before the General Election).
Candidates registered so far are:
Nick Cicchitelli - President, Fox Point Neighborhood Association.
John Goncalves - Fox Point board member; co-founder Providence Coalition Of Neighborhood Associations.
Anthony Santurri - Board member of
Jewelry District Association &
Downtown Neighborhood Association.
At the JDA's regular monthly meeting on Jan 14, a large crowd heard a presentation from each of the candidates and participated in a lively question and answer period.
It is not known whether other candidates will toss their hats in the ring.
