In the Jewelry District we see both the good and the truly bad. Clubs that tightly hew to the letter of the law and ones that seem to go out of their way to foster the worst kind of behavior.

The JDA has been actively working with the Hospitality Resource Partnership on this problem. And there has been progress. We monitor Board of Licenses hearings on license approvals and violations. Members of the Providence Police, and the Brown and Johnson & Wales campus police regularly attend JDA meetings to update us on law enforcement in our area. We've also worked with Councilman Seth Yurdin and the City Council to improve the effectiveness of the night club ordinances.
Come to JDA monthly meetings to learn more about ways we're working with the City and State to do something about this siutation. Our goal is to keep our neighborhood, and the City of Providence, a great, orderly and peaceful place to live, work and, yes, have a great time at a night club.
