The State of Rhode Island officially wants to know WHO is interested in using the Cranston Street Armory and for what purposes. Potential users could be community groups, developers and everything in between. Chances are, YOU, neighbor, know someone (or know someone who knows someone) who could really make something special happen in our Castle for the People. With a deadline of January 25 for potential users and operators to share ideas and interest with the state, we need all hands on deck to get the word out about the state’s open “Request for Information” period happening NOW.
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.
Introducing Neighborhood Nights, an all-in-one community meeting where neighbors come together to explore a planned topic or issue, check out a WBNA committee, and/or play basketball at open gym! This new monthly gathering is an easy way to get to know WBNA and your neighbors with free food, childcare, and Spanish translation.
