City Councilors meeting in Providence Tuesday evening will consider a plan to redevelop the Providence waterfront. They could vote to move forward with an effort to revamp some 300 acres.
The redevelopment area stretches along the lower Providence waterfront, from about Thurbers Avenue south to Fields Point. It would transfer control of the land to the Providence Redevelopment Agency, the city organization that works to improve blighted areas in the city. The plan would also fund environmental cleanup of the site, much of which is heavily contaminated.
