Will They Fix it? Earlier this month, the City of Providence announced its Capital Improvement Plan, a 5- year infrastructure plan for roads, sidewalks, sewers, and more. It includes five project sites in Fox Point. Learn more here. See map, here, and project list here.

Update on Toxic Digging. Yesterday, the Department of Environmental Management heard public comments on an application from National Grid to do toxic digging off Allens Ave. The proposed digging would lay the groundwork for a liquified natural gas facility in South Providence. Neighbors, health advocates and environmentalists have strongly opposed the project,  led by the group No LNG in PVD. Find updates here, and media coverage here and here.
