Breed Hall Public Hearing: From the City of East Providence - All are invited to a Public Hearing to discuss the proposed re-use of Breed Hall located at 610 Waterman Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island. Previously it was used as part of the Senior Center for a variety of activities such as fiscal fitness classes. Community Development Block Grant funds from the Federal Department of Housing & Urban Development was used to renovate this property as a public facility to benefit our seniors that are low to moderate income East Providence citizens.
The property is currently vacant. The City of East Providence proposes to have the building occupied by one or more entities that would benefit East Providence residents in general with a minimum of 51% of all benefiting being low to moderate income. The City will achieve this through a request for proposals to lease the space. The public hearing will be held Thursday, October 4th, 6:00-7:00pm, Room 306 City Hall, 145 Taunton Ave, East Providence.
This Day in History: The Soviet Union inaugurates the "Space Age" with its launch of Sputnik, the world's first artificial satellite. The spacecraft, named Sputnik after the Russian word for "satellite," was launched at 10:29 p.m. Moscow time from the Tyuratam launch base in the Kazakh Republic. Visible with binoculars before sunrise or after sunset, Sputnik transmitted radio signals back to Earth strong enough to be picked up by amateur radio operators. Those in the United States with access to such equipment tuned in and listened in awe as the beeping Soviet spacecraft passed over America several times a day.
