Support RIDEM + Statewide Planning with your opinion!

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and Rhode Island Division of Statewide Planning are “seeking public input on outdoor recreation across our state to help to inform the Rhode Island Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP).  Your feedback will help us create better outdoor opportunities for all Rhode Islanders and visitors and will be used to help prioritize funding for future projects.”

Kick Off Rally for Yes on 3

Rhode Islanders, join the cause this morning with YESon3RI and the Audobon Society of Rhode Island as they host a kickoff rally for Yes on 3.  Not aware of the November ballot decision?

The $47.3 million Green Economy and Clean Water bond on November’s ballot gives voters the opportunity to support a state-wide investment that builds on Rhode Island’s strengths: a healthy Narragansett Bay, safe drinking water for all, a robust network of bikeways and recreational facilities, revitalized industrial spaces, working farms, open spaces for generations to enjoy, and protection against flooding and storm events.

When:  Today, October 12th at 10 AM

Where: Waterplace Park Amphitheatre, Providence, RI
