The first public discussion about the development of plans for the Revitalization of Watchemoket Square was held on January 15, 2020 at Tockwotton on the Waterfront. A report based on research, interviews and ideas from the public discussion is under development. Some of the topics will be featured during the Watchemoket Square Week online presentation on October 28 with Jim Moran, chief economic planner for the City of East Providence.
Hosted by the City of East Providence, the January meeting focused on early thoughts and ideas related to an array of improvements under consideration for implementation in the area, and on branding, place-making and multi-model transportation improvements for the Waterfront Gateway District.
Thanks to Dr. David Weed and Sowams Heritage Area Project, there is a 90-minute video and photo highlights from this meeting.

Watchemoket Square Day is a celebration of the past, present and future of Watchemoket Square in the City of East Providence, Rhode Island.
During the late 1800's and early 1900's, the area was the center of the East Providence business community with over 100 businesses and hotels. It is now experiencing renewed interest and development of its buildings, waterfront and landscape.
