EDITORIAL: Question #6, Enhancing Quality of Life in RI

Sunday, November 06, 2016


In many of the national business polls that rank Rhode Island poorly for business, the one category that Rhode Island always performs well for is “quality of life.” 

The legacy of Rhode Island’s preservation of open space goes back to the mid-1960s and the Green Acres program under then-Governor John H. Chafee. That tradition has helped to save Goddard, Colt, and Lincoln Woods State Parks. 

This year’s environmental ballot question asks for $35 million to support improvements for recreation facilities, open space, rehab of brownfields and much more.

GoLocal believes that no one in the future will ever criticize us for developing parks or cleaning up contaminated properties.

Rhode Island is a remarkably beautiful state - let's keep improving it.

We urge voters to vote yes and support protecting and enhancing our environment.
