Regardless of the reasons (though I’m curious…) we just know from COMMON SENSE that this will limit the housing supply and put upward pressure on prices… not good… of course it allows the City to avoid dealing directly with the complicated, real issue of… noise pollution. Forcing students to live part continues to ignore the underlying problem across the city… and exacerbate the absurd housing market.

Southside is where it is really at.

Most diverse in every way, most neighborly, therefore not exactly the quietest in the Summer.

Anywhere along Elmwood or Broad. You could walk or cycle to work.

Don’t be shy!

Thanks for posting this!!

I’m sitting here wondering… when/how can actual survivors of child sexual abuse (I am one of many, many diverse stories) speak up and check talking point from people who (seemingly) have no first-hand idea what they are talking about.

WHY ARE YOU CLAIMING TO SPEAK FOR US? Ever ask survivors what they think would help?

(And this is sort of outside politics as I am independent/moderate/eclectic). Obviously elements of the GOP are running with this right now and it’s infuriating… as a survivor….

Go r/you

I hope the above response is sincere and accurate. Stranger things have happened than an 80 year old doing something they didn’t quite understand. Much stranger things have happened but that’s just my personal assessment based on my life experiences. EVEN IF he sort of meant it: to “commiserate” with the “Lost Cause” but didn’t realize it’s implications… especially in the wake of things like domestic terrorist attacks in Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, Charleston, Washington DC, etc etc etc… my sense is we should extend as much grace, mercy, knowledge, and compassion (which is different from forgive and forget— I like forgiving, forgetting not as much) toward even our bonafide enemies, we might get farther in changing their hearts and the hearts of their children, over time. Or we could just call our neighbors our enemy and be pissed which IS understandable too… Providence is a great city. That’s still my takeaway.

There is a problem in my neighborhood with people going 90MPH in residential areas yes.

Point taken about the police state. But I also favor ending the War on Drugs and LEOBOR and several other key criminal justice reforms. I think we can have eclectic points of view. In fact I think most people do and rarely fit into a neat little box. Thanks!
