The Providence Story
Providence, CNU XIV's host city, has gained national acclaim as a model for downtown revitalization and smart infill development. Once a depressed, post-industrial city, Providence has uncovered rivers, moved railroad tracks and is dismantling an obstructive highway to create an improved civic realm and free up valuable land for new development. The leaders of the Providence renaissance share their insights on how an entire city was revitalized and what opportunities for improvement remain.
