This week at Aurora, join CNU New EnglandÂ for a walkaboutÂ inÂ Providence’s Kennedy Plaza followed by a panel discussion atÂ AuroraÂ to review the progress, programming, and next stepsÂ forÂ the Vision for Greater Kennedy Plaza. Through a public-private partnership between the Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy and the City of Providence, this project seeks to create a pedestrian-friendly environment, encourage transit ridership, bolster economic well-being, promote arts and culture, and encourage tourism.
