Rep. Tobon statement on Tidewater Landing development
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Carlos Tobon (D-Dist. 58, Pawtucket) is providing the following statement about the recent announcement of the Tidewater Landing project in Pawtucket.
“As the prime sponsor of the TIF legislation in the House, I saw the incredible importance of this bill to Pawtucket and its residents. With the loss of the PawSox, it’s more crucial than ever to redevelop assets that are dormant in our city, particularly in the downtown area. The Tidewater Landing Development will give Pawtucket the crucial economic development needed to revitalize our city without costing taxpayers a dime. I’d like to thank Speaker Mattiello and the entire House of Representatives for their support of the legislation that paved the way for this wonderful Tidewater Development project announcement and I know everyone is looking forward to seeing the first shovel going into the ground, leading Pawtucket into a new era of economic success and redevelopment. I am confident that the success of this project will lead to even bigger things for Pawtucket and our state’s economy. The people of Pawtucket and Rhode Island have waited a long time to see Pawtucket thriving, and we believe that time has come, as we are on the precipice of a Pawtucket that will rival the storied Pawtucket of long ago,” said Representative Tobon.
