  • CPC - Washington Square Roots Community Charrette

The Roger William University Community Partnerships Center (CPC) is proud to be assisting Washington Square Roots in its community planning process to prioritize goals, make recommendations, plan uses and design improvements to Washington Square and the areas immediately adjacent to Newport's historic town center.

A large public planning charette was held place on Friday October 19th and Saturday October 20th. For more information, see Washington Square Roots' Facebook page for the Charrette 

As part of its involvement, RWU is acting as the electronic library for important reports and images that can inform the participants in the community planning process. Please use any of the following reports and publications from previous planning efforts and important initiatives around the Square:
