Statement from Council President Pro Tempore Pedro Espinal regarding CRMC Decision to Uphold Public Street Shoreline Access

Jul 28, 2021 | 0 comments

Last night, I was glad to join community members at the Coastal Resource Management Council (CRMC) meeting, to welcome the decision the CRMC made to protect public shoreline access on Public Street in Providence.

Shoreline access is a legally protected right in Rhode Island. All residents living in the Ocean State should be able to access our beautiful shorelines, including here in Providence.

I would like to thank the office of Attorney General Peter Neronha, the CRMC, the City of Providence, and the many community activists who advocated to protect this right of way.

Moving forward, I hope we can continue this momentum, working to expand environmental equity in the south side of Providence and throughout the city.
