Pawtucket – Today, Pawtucket Mayor Donald R. Grebien issued an executive order establishing a joint planning commission for the development of a new train station. The Commission is comprised of the Pawtucket Planning Commission and the Central Falls Planning Commission.
“As we move forward with the development of the Pawtucket/Central Falls train station, it is critical that we implement a coherent plan to promote and sustain this valuable asset,” said Mayor Grebien. “The train station will drive our economy, employment, retail, and recreation. I am pleased to be forming this commission with Central Falls to cut red-tape and make strategic decisions that will benefit our communities for decades to come.”
