Dike Street Area, Olneyville
The Providence Department of Planning + Development is sponsoring a Community Charrette for the Dike Street Special Area Plan on Saturday, March 19, from 9:45 – 11:45am at the King’s Cathedral.
An 11-Block area of Onleyville situated between Routes 6 and 10, the historically-designated industrial buildings and mixed businesses are in a unique position for reinvestment and redevelopment. Under the Dike Street Special Area Plan, the city hopes to “establish a vision for the study area that is both aspirational and realistic. It will lay out discrete actions that can be taken toward the fulfillment of the vision, and it will identify and charge public and private partners to carry out those actions. Lastly, the Plan will identify how to channel readily-available funding and investment tools to the study area. “
Both the Dike Street Special Area Plan Stakeholder Committee and the general public will participate in focus groups on specific topic areas. The outcomes of these focus groups will inform both the articulation of a vision for Dike Street and the identification of appropriate resources and policies for achieving that vision.
