Statement from Councilman Pedro Espinal Regarding the Proposed Transfer Station at 481 Allens Avenue

Mar 12, 2020 | 0 comments

I have just received notice that the owner of 481 Allens Avenue has withdrawn their application from the City Plan Commission for a proposed transfer station that they were hoping to put in place there.
This was due in large part to the advocacy from our neighbors in Lower-South Providence and Washington Park, our partners in local and state government, and the many community groups that have spoken out against this facility that was intended for our backyards.
I want to personally thank all of our partners who were steadfast in voicing their concerns for the safety of our Port and for the residents that live in and around the area.
No longer will Lower-South Providence and Washington Park be a dumping ground. We deserve better, and I will work every day to make sure that happens.
