Neighborhood Nights is a monthly gathering of neighbors that features a General Meeting in the first hour followed by all WBNA Committees meeting in the second. Free food, child care and Spanish interpretation provided, plus open gym. Meet your neighbors, learn about WBNA and neighborhood initiatives, and get involved! Open to all.

6 to 7pm  |  Simple ways to green our homes and neighborhood

WBNA and the Green Initiatives Committee welcome Urban Greens Food Co-op, Groundwork Rhode Island, RI Resource Recovery Corporation, Green Energy Consumers Alliance, and Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council to our November Neighborhood Nights general meeting. These local organizations will present a range of green resources available to our community and simple ways to green up the west side.

From 7 to 8pm, immediately following the General Meeting portion of the evening, there will be a meet and greet with all of the presenters, where attendees can learn more about green resources and the work of these organizations.

7 to 8pm  |  RIDOT 6-10 Update + all WBNA Committees

After the General Meeting, all WBNA Committees will break out and meet in designated classrooms, with a special presentation at our Community Development Committee (CDC) meeting from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) about important updates to the 6-10 Highway Connector Project. RIDOT’s presentation includes the following:

  1. RIDOT’s Business Outreach platform

  2. 2018/19 phasing plan and the “Big Picture” of the 6-10 Interchange Project

  3. RIDOT’s 5 Year, 6-10 Communication Strategy

  4. Q&A about the project from attendees

Neighbors are encouraged to stay and take part in a committee that interests you – all committees are open to the public! Committees are the backbone of the work and fun that happen at the WBNA and are entirely neighbor-led. Explore, and help make our initiatives, programs, and advocacy happen!
