City Council Public Hearing
September 25, 2019—7:00pm
137 Roosevelt Avenue, 3rd Floor
(401) 728-0500 x348

The City of Pawtucket is considering a zoning ordinance amendment that would establish an “overlay” district around the future Pawtucket—Central Falls Commuter Rail Station to be located at 280 Pine Street. This overlay, if approved by the Pawtucket City Council, would include approximately 2,000 properties, and in no way would restrict the current zoning of your property.

The primary goal of this overlay is to provide construction incentives that may be utilized by property owners who voluntarily elect to create affordable housing units. Affordable housing units, often referred to as workforce housing, are intended for residents with annual incomes that are around 60-80% of the average income of all residents living in the greater Providence area. These residential units must also be maintained as affordable through a recorded deed for a period of at least 10 years. This proposal was developed following several public workshops held to consider various strategies to encourage a diverse range of housing options for all residents.

Please remember that any production of affordable housing units would be entirely voluntary for all residential property owners.
