City of East Providence is seeking public input on the proposed use of Breed Hall

All are invited to a Public Hearing to discuss the proposed re-use of Breed Hall located at 610 Waterman Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island. Previously it was used as part of the Senior Center for a variety of activities such as fiscal fitness classes. Community Development Block Grant funds from the Federal Department of Housing & Urban Development was used to renovate this property as a public facility to benefit our seniors that are low to moderate income East Providence citizens. The property is currently vacant. The City of East Providence proposes to have the building occupied by one or more entities that would benefit East Providence residents in general with a minimum of 51% of all benefiting being low to moderate income. The City will achieve this through a request for proposals to lease the space.

Public Hearing Thursday, October 4th, 6:00-7:00pm Room 306 City Hall 145 Taunton Ave East Providence, Rhode Island

All are encouraged to participate in discussing this re-use of Breed Hall.
