Hello Friends & Neighbors!


I hope that this note finds you well and that you were able to enjoy some time outside on Saturday with the drier weather! We are headed into February -- and spring is on the way. There are lots of things happening at City Hall and in our community that I want to share with you!


Upcoming City Government Meetings:

  • The Special Committee on the Environment and Resilience will hold a public hearing on February 7th at 6pm in the City Council chambers. The Committee will be hearing testimony on the ordinance I sponsored to lead by example and ensure all municipal buildings are carbon neutral by 2040. You can also submit testimony to the Clerk at: cityclerk@providenceri.gov

Happenings in Providence:

  • Now through February 20th, check out the Lumina Celebration downtown -- connecting the Skating Rink to the 195 District via Dorrance street with lights and art. Learn more here: https://downtownpvdpark.life/lumina

  • The Rhode Island Center for the book just kick off this year's Read Across Rhode Island with the book Solito by Javier Zamora. I just started reading it - and can't wait to participate in some of the events to discuss the book and learn more! Check out their website for more details.

  • The 4th Annual Juneteenth Awards Gala will be held on April 13th. Check out details and buy tickets here. It's an inspiring and fun night - and the Juneteenth Committee is led by Ward 3's own Helen Baskerville Dukes!

City Services:

  • 311: With the winter weather often come increased potholes and other potential issues with city services. Please log any issues you find at https://www.providenceri.gov/pvd-311/ You can also download the app for your smartphone to log on the go. Councilors are also provided a monthly report of all 311 requests made in their wards and their status.

  • Waste Management: After a recent storm, trash across the East Side was severely delayed. This coincided with a planned delay for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday weekend.  I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding and also apologize on behalf of the City. This was not the level of service you deserve as residents. I will always work hard to share information transparently and quickly so you all can plan accordingly.

As always, please reach out to me anytime at AnderBois.Ward3@gmail.com.  


With Gratitude,


Councilor Sue AnderBois
