Allens Ave. Waste Facility Meeting

(1.21) Those opposed to the proposed waste facility on Allens Avenue will be attending the City Planning Commission meeting downtown Tuesday. Opposition is being organized by Sunrise Providence and Washington Park Association. (Facebook event.)

There’s a new industrial plant proposed for Allens Ave. The nearest neighborhoods – primarily the Washington Park and South Side communities – already face some of the most dangerous environmental degradation in the state, and children in this area have some of the highest asthma rates in RI. This new plant would make this situation dramatically worse, and runs counter to the goals outlined in the Providence Climate Justice Plan – it’s expected to receive 188 diesel truck deliveries every day, and to bring large quantities of dust and exhaust to an already-polluted area.

4pm to 7pm, Tuesday, January 21, Doorley Building, 444 Westminster Street, (directions)
