Providence, RI; BigBelly Solar Trash Containers were installed on Thayer Street replacing traditional barrel style trash cans. Funded by the TSDMA, the BigBelly compactors are the latest in public trash technology.
Thayer Street District Management Authority (TSDMA) collaborates with Brown student organization, Artbeat, to unveil first Pop-up Window Art Exhibition at 271 Thayer Street (former City Sports location) December 2 at 2:00 PM during the Thayer Holiday Stroll.
Lead by Mandi Cai, Brown student and student organization, Artbeat with mentor, TSDMA Executive Director, Donna Personeus, Artbeat, secured two local artists to contribute to the first of many Thayer Street Pop-Up Window Art Exhibitions. The unveiling the exhibition “In Transition” is scheduled for Wednesday, December 2 at 2:00 p.m. at 271 Thayer Street (formerly City Sports) during the Thayer Street Holiday Stroll.
“In Transition” is an exhibition about Providence’s street art scene and its movement through different spaces.. All art can be seen as ephemeral in nature, on display for a period of time and then stored away somewhere private only to be appreciated by a select few. Street art permeates the vacant buildings, piles of rubble, and lonely brick walls to convey a message of its own. The art is not confined to space, instead embracing the space that it finds itself in. The spray paint’s lifespan is at the mercy of the wrecking ball, but the sheer irony that its beauty comes from eventually being destroyed is what makes street art hauntingly beautiful.
The exhibition features two local artists, Linda Handel, digital photographer, and Providence artist Nick Guilbert. The window gallery exhibition will be unveiled on December 2nd and stay up until the empty building begins its transition into another business, or until January 31, 2016.
The Bike Repair Station funded by the Thayer Street District Management Authority (TSDMA) officially opens for public use after Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony November 9th officially opened the new Bike Repair Station in the Thayer Street District to the public. Located on the side of the Brown University Bookstore on Olive Street, corner of Olive and Thayer, the Bike Repair Station includes specialized bicycle repair tools and an air pump. The Bike Repair Station is the newest improvement to the District funded by the TSDMA. Legend Bicycle shop located on Brooke Street has entered into a maintenance sponsorship agreement with the TSDMA to assure the station will be repaired and tools replaced if necessary.
The idea of installing a bike repair station on Thayer started more than 20 months during a meeting between TSDMA Executive Director, Donna Personeus and Eric Weiss of City of Providence Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Commission & East Coast Greenway Alliance, when Mr. Weiss shared his wish list for Thayer which included a bicycle repair station. The TSDMA relied on the expertise of both Mr. Weiss and Mr. Madden, owner of Legend Bicycle in the selection of the ideal repair station that would both serve the needs of neighborhood recreational bike riders and avid area cyclists. Brown University was instrumental in providing a secure location that would allow the station to be open to cyclists year round as well as protected by video surveillance. “The Bike Repair Station is a great example of teamwork and how positive improvements can happen when people and organization come together to support their community” stated TSDMA Executive Director, Donna Personeus.

The Thayer Street District Management Authority (TSDMA) was established by Thayer Street property owners and granted status to operate as a ‘Business Improvement District’ by the City of Providence Code of Ordinances and in accordance with RI General Law 45-59-14(b) in January 2006. The District is comprised of the area bounded by Bowen Street, Brook Street, Waterman Street and the rear lot line of parcels that face the western side of Thayer Street. Over the years since our establishment, the district has undertaken the installation of new sidewalks, stamped crosswalks, trash cans, lighting, trees, recycling programs, daily sidewalk cleaning, trash and graffiti removal. In 2013, the City of Providence’s Department of Planning & Development worked with a consultant team and members of the TSDMA to prepare a plan for the future of the District. The Final Thayer Street Planning Study is now available online. TSDMA is governed by a Board of Directors made up of District property owners, merchants and representatives of Brown University. Day to day operations are overseen by our TSDMA Executive Director.

We apologize for the delay in the opening of Thayer Street this morning. The work plan was to complete operations by 11:00 A.M. However, the Contractor encountered some equipment problems during the night which delayed work. We will be reviewing with the City the current allowable work hours on Thayer Street from 1:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. in an effort to minimize and to mitigate impacts and delays. We again apologize for any inconvenience the delay may have caused.
Also, we have provided the updated summary of the roadway improvements proposed within the area of the Thayer Street and Brown University.
