In the works for several years, CiTY WALK has come to realization thanks to the efforts of a city-wide coalition of individuals and organizations. Spearheading its development, the JDA Planning & Zoning Committee has been working with the Providence Foundation, Ron Henderson/L+A Landscape Architecture, the Providence Planning Dept. and neighborhood organizations along the route between Roger Williams and India Point Parks.
CiTY WALK was included as one of the projects in the long-range Rhode Island Transportation Improvement Plan for 2017-2025 submitted for Federal funding. In 2016, a total of approximately $1.9 million was approved for design and implementation during 2017-2018. So the work can begin now!
