North End Urban Plan Public Forum 2 - CANCELLED - Online Information Provided

Dear Newporters,

As you might have guessed, due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak, we will be moving all North End Urban Plan activities online for the remainder of the project. 

This decision is being taken based on public health recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Rhode Island Department of Health. This means we’ll be holding the following events online rather than in-person:

  • North End Urban Plan Steering Committee meeting on Tues., March 17th

  • Second North End Urban Plan Public Forum on Wed., March 18th

  • The Drop-in Center on Wed., March 18th and Thurs., March 19th

All remaining planning activities will be accessible through our online comment portal: Please be sure to click that link to sign up (if you have not already joined) and feel free to share with your friends, family, and coworkers.

We expect to have draft documents from the consultant team online for the community’s review by 5 p.m. next Wednesday, March 18th. 

Please note that we can only continue to collect online comments through Sunday, March 22nd, in order to give our team enough time to process and incorporate the community’s perspectives into final products before the project deadline of Wednesday, April 8th.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding as we prioritize public health. If you have any questions, please direct them to John Harlow at <>.
