Chevron recognizes the importance of economic development for the communities where we operate. That’s why we created a comprehensive vision that illustrates the possibilities for future development of the East Providence Harborfront at Bold Point, which includes Chevron’s former Gulf and Unocal properties, as well as properties owned by RI Waterfront Enterprises and Tockwotton on the Waterfront.
To create the vision, we collaborated with RI Waterfront Enterprises and Tockwotton, and sought input from the community, local businesses, property owners, the City of East Providence and state agencies on their needs for the area in the future.
Desired outcomes are to create a sense of identity for the area, make use of former industrial sites, improve public access and initiate new recreational uses on the waterfront. The needs of the community can be accomplished by improving the natural environment; creating a safer pedestrian environment and local and regional connections; and by bringing new businesses and economic development to the waterfront while supporting existing businesses.
