December Street News // Noticias de las calles de diciembre

2021 saw the completion of more than 20 miles of the Great Streets Plan’s 75-mile Urban Trail Network (map coming soon), the passage of the Providence Green and Complete Streets Ordinance, the shelving of the deeply flawed Multi-Hub Bus Project, and much more progress towards safer streets and more transportation choices. Our biggest takeaway of the year?


Human infrastructure changes physical infrastructure. 


We go so much farther when we go together. THANK YOU to our Coalition partners and supporters, our Street Team, our storytellers, our rally attendees, our op/ed writers, our petition signers, our digital campaign advocates, our mini-grant applicants and recipients, our yard sign hosts, our volunteer car-counters, our social media knights, and our ‘Providence Was, Is, Will Be’ sharers. We are so excited to continue growing our community in 2022!

Want to Get More Involved? Join the PSC Community Organizing Group

In 2022, we’re trying something new. In an effort to continue growing, deepening, and regularly connecting with our community, we are introducing the PSC Community Organizing Group! The group will meet monthly (if safely in person, then with pizza!) to develop and co-create strategies and actions around the implementation of safe, equitable, and sustainable streets. No previous experience or knowledge is necessary – this will be a space to both teach and learn. If you’ve been wanting to get more deeply involved in our work, here’s how. Sign up here.
