Senior Deputy Majority Leader Terrence Hassett, Chairman of the Committee on Ordinances, has announced that the Committee will hold a public hearing on the Hope Point Tower on Monday, October 22, 2018 at 5:30 PM in the City Council Chambers.
“A 300 Million Dollar investment in the City of Providence is a once in a generation opportunity, and I strongly believe that the Council has a fiduciary responsibility to allow the developer a chance to testify before this body,” stated Senior Deputy Majority Leader and Chairman of the Committee on Ordinances Terrence Hassett. “The Committee has heard a great deal of testimony both for and against this project, but one voice was missing, and that didn’t seem right to me. I asked my colleagues on the Council to send it back to Committee so that we could have the opportunity to hear from Mr. Fane and his associates so that we may better inform our vote.”
If any person wishes to make a public comment they are asked to sign in before the 5:30 PM meeting start time. The Chambers will open on or around 5:00 PM and sign-ups will begin at the same time.
Constituents who are unable to attend the public hearing may provide written testimony by mail or email to Lori L. Hagen, City Clerk: firstname.lastname@example.org City Clerk, 25 Dorrance Street, Room 311, Providence, RI 02903. (Please note, if you submit written testimony you are not required to appear or read your testimony at the public hearing.)
