As part of a project Providence, RI, PPS lead a workshop of over 130 city officials, business owners, residents and representatives of nonprofit groups about potential improvements to the city’s central plaza, Kennedy Plaza.

“All over the world, people are coming back to these great squares. Once you’ve got a great square, the rest of your city is going to fall into place,” said Kent. He and PPS envision a Kennedy Plaza that is ringed by shops, full of attractions and serves as the hub for a different kind of transit system, one based on trolleys or trams.
