2 NORTH PROVIDENCE PUBLIC SAFETY COMPLEX SEPTEMBER 11-17, 2019 | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION Trio issues open invitation to opening of complex SAVON SHOES 1720 Mineral Spring Avenue North Providence, RI • 353-1762 471 Main Street, Warren, RI (formerly Jamiels Shoe World) 245-4389 FEATURING TIMBERLAND, WOLVERINE, RED WING AND CHIPPEWA BOOTS It is with a great sense of pride and honor that we announce a ribbon- cutting ceremony for the North Providence Public Safety Complex on Sept. 21 at 11 a.m. This auspicious occa- sion is not only a time of celebration, but also an opportunity to recog- nize all those who serve, and have served, in the public safety profession as first responders in our town. Each and every day, our public safety offi- cials receive the call to assist the public, respond to emergen- cies, and safeguard our town against unrelenting challenges and threats. Every day we rely on them to do the excep- tional and often danger- ous work of protecting all that we hold dear. Humbly, these remark- able individuals never stop answering the call for service. The new North Providence Public Safety Complex is a 58,000-square-foot, world-class, state-of-the- art facility, which hous- es our police, fire, and municipal court. The public safety complex is not only centrally locat- ed within our town, but also sits at one of the town's highest elevations, manifesting swift response times for first responders and the ability to direct resources in a multidirectional manner due to the close proximity of two major intersections. Recognizing the critical role our first responders play in the commu- nity, this new complex will afford them with a modern, first-class working environment, offering our public safety officials the latest tech- nology, communications and accom- modations to perform these duties. The total budget of $28 million was entirely financed by the Google settlement at no taxpayer expense. Having our municipal court housed in the new public safety complex provides the public an accommodating location to have their cases and hearings resolved in a professional judicial setting. The latest of many capital projects in the town, this public safety com- plex will serve our community for generations to come and is a beauti- ful building the entire town may be proud of. We extend our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all who have made this public safety complex a reality. Please join us to celebrate the grand opening and ribbon- cutting for our facility on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 1835 Mineral Spring Ave., directly across the street from North Providence High School.
