Armory Public Meeting with Utile Design 

Monday, September 17, 2018, 6-7:30pm, at 29 Bainbridge Avenue

On Monday, September 17, WBNA and the RI's Department of Capital Asset Management & Maintenance (DCAMM) led by Director Carole Cornelison will host a public meeting on the Cranston Street Armory that features a presentation by Utile, the consultants hired last year to determine viable re-use options for the Armory.

This meeting is focused on updating the public on exciting progress that is being made as well as next steps, and to communicate how and when the public will be involved in the re-use planning process. We thank Director Cornelison for her continued commitment to this important building, and look forward to hearing from Utile about its findings. Please share far and wide!

The WBNA House Tour – this year presented with Providence Preservation Society – takes you through a dozen private homes and a multitude of artist studios and urban gardens, creatively reimagined on Providence's west side.

Experience history transformed as you walk through a converted 1870's firehouse, a long-abandoned church turned residences, and a modern take on the 19th century lightning splitter, plus hidden gardens and green spaces spanning Hammond & Harrison Streets, the focus area of this year's tour. Tickets just $20 ($15 for students/seniors) in advance, $25/20 on Tour Day.
