Jane’s Walk: Envisioning North Main’s Future

For many, North Main is a pass-through — an inhospitable street characterized by dangerous traffic, empty lots, limited services, and few places to stop and sit. However, North Main also has several assets and a rich history. In recent years, community members and stakeholders have come together to reflect on North Main’s past and envision a new future — as a vibrant neighborhood corridor with improved economic activity, housing, transportation options, and public open space. Come for a participatory stroll on North Main, from North Burial Ground to the Pawtucket line. Jane’s Walk is a global festival of walking conversations inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. These interactive walks are led by local residents and community activists who share stories and ask questions that get people thinking, talking, and connecting with each other. Jane’s Walks are free, and anyone can participate. Wear comfortable shoes, meet your walk leader in the designated meeting spot, and get ready for a lively discussion.
