The 2015 awards will recognize three inspiring leaders, four transformative smart growth projects and two visionary sets of policies that support and encourage smart growth and address barriers to downtown development. A special Founders’ Leadership Award will also be presented.
Each year, passionate, creative and resourceful Rhode Islanders show us the way to tap our state’s full potential through projects, plans and policies that play to Rhode Island’s strengths, generate enduring economic benefits, both statewide and in specific neighborhoods.
The event will feature a keynote address by Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer. Congressman Blumenauer has been the chief spokesperson in Congress for smart growth and vibrant communities. He has traveled the country for more than a decade observing and promoting smart growth best practices.
We’ll gather at the Providence G to hear from Congressman Blumenauer and to present the awards. Then we’ll head across the street for a cocktail reception at the historic Providence Arcade (both venues are previous award winners).
