Sen. Cano statement on Pawtucket redevelopment efforts
STATE HOUSE – Sen. Sandra Cano (D-Dist. 8, Pawtucket) is releasing the following statement concerning the announced Tidewater Landing Development project,
“Despite recent hardships, Pawtucket has a lot of momentum behind it, and today’s wonderful announcement is proof that Pawtucket is as resilient as ever. When I sponsored the TIF legislation that enabled today’s announcement to become a reality, I did so because I recognized the potential Pawtucket has to redevelop and rejuvenate key districts within our city for the betterment of all of our residents. Today’s historic redevelopment announcement is the first step in this mission and I commend all of the stakeholders involved in order to bring this hope into reality. In particular, I would like to thank my colleagues in the Senate for believing in Pawtucket’s potential and recognizing the need for, and passing, the legislation that made all of this possible. I have no doubt that the new stadium and a fully developed and thriving riverfront will be an absolute success and these projects will serve as a shining example of what is possible in our ever-changing communities. Today marks a brand new beginning for the City of Pawtucket and I truly could not be any more pleased and proud of my city,” said Senator Cano.
