Statement from Council President Pro Tempore Pedro Espinal Regarding Sea 3 Providence Expansion Proposal

May 5, 2021 | 0 comments

I am fully opposed to any expansion of any development by Sea 3 Providence in the Port of Providence.

The industrial operations already taking place in this neighborhood have repeatedly created major threats to public health, safety and the local environment. Any economic gains presented by Sea 3’s expansion proposal are far outweighed by the risks of further polluting the Port of Providence and South Side neighborhoods.

As the Councilman to Ward 10, protecting public health, safety and quality of life remains my top priority. For this reason, I will be submitting a letter of opposition to this proposal as part of the public comment period.

Pedro Espinal
Councilman, Ward 10
President Pro Tempore, Providence City Council
