West Broadway Neighborhood Association organizes neighbors and businesses on the West Side of Providence to preserve and promote our diverse, historic, urban community as a safe, vibrant, and sustainable place to be SWELL (Shop, Work, Eat, Live, and Learn locally).
WBNA is holding a special meeting for neighbors and our Community Development Committee to review development projects proposed for 110 Hudson Street and 473 Washington Streets. ALL ARE WELCOME.
Bring your gently used or new coats, gloves, hats, and scarves to WBNA through November 20. Part of our annual Live Local, Give Local community giving campaign, all donations go to the Buy Nothing Day Coat Exchange, which has brought coats and warm things to children and families for 22 years.
As part of our Live Local, Give Local community giving campaign this holiday season, WBNA is collecting new and unwrapped toys for children ages 18 months to 13 years of age in support of West End Community Center's annual toy drive. Thank you for considering those in need in our community as you plan your holiday giving.
It's a simple idea: Give where you live. And this year, WBNA makes it simple to do, by organizing three local giving opportunities that promise a positive impact in neighbors' lives this season.
WBNA has been working with the state since June to ensure that a comprehensive presentation to the public about the Cranston Street Armory will take place in September that includes consultant Utile’s findings on possible re-uses for our neighborhood castle, as well as a reporting on the positive progress and momentum currently underway for this state asset.
WBNA seeks a new or existing business to occupy its 1978 square foot, ground floor retail space at 1577 Westminster Street, available starting September 1, 2018. While this sunny first floor space was originally built as a small market and café, WBNA welcomes a broad range of commercial uses including shops, start-ups, or other entities.
WBNA's summer performance series (June 28 and July 12, 19, & 26) features family-friendly fun with Trinity Rep's bilingual adaptation of The Tempest / La Tempestad, Motown band Nickel Jukebox, salsa and bachata sensation Roberto Arias y su Alebreke, and the awe-inspiring 60+ piece The American Band, plus lots of kids activities, the Armory Farmers Market Beer Garden, and more!
