Apponaug Village Master Plan

WDADG was selected as the Master Planning Consultant for the 5-year Master Plan update for the Apponaug Village in Warwick, RI. The Master Plan addressed first and foremost the identification and prioritization of neighborhood opportunities and constraints. These areas include Traffic Volume within the Village Center; Pedestrian Safety within the Village Center; Community Identity and Village Gateways; and the Economic Revitalization of the Village Center. WDADG's primary objective for the Village was to create a plan that focused on two important goals: achieving balance and establishing and maintaining a unique sense of place. WDADG worked with the City and the Apponaug Area Improvement Association to ensure that balance was maintained in every phase of the planning effort- balance between pedestrians and motorists who are within the village; balance between aesthetic and programmatic factors; balance between existing natural features and proposed improvements; balance between environmental phenomena and human intervention.
