A packed house heard about SNA activies over the past year, enjoyed an extended question and answer session with their city and state elected representatives, and met Lieutenant Alan Ziegelmayer, who is in charge of Police District Eight, which encompasses the Summit, Mt. Hope and Blackstone neighborhoods. See more inside.
Councilman Kevin Jackson, House Majority Leader Gordon Fox and Senator Rhoda Perry this evening endorsed a statement supporting SNA’s call for Miriam Hospital to work with neighbors to establish a “right size” for the hospital in our neighborhood.
The November newsletter went to press today, with a continued focus on neighborhood opposition to Miriam Hospital’s plans for their main campus. Other headlines concern a new historic district in Summit, problems with the traffic calming project, news of CVS, Cumberland Farms, Community Police and more.
The Providence Preservation Society sent word today that the Summit Avenue Historic District was approved by the National Park Service and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Eight years in the making, the Summit Avenue district is just the first of what we hope will be many historic district designations in our neighborhood.
