here is a map of the site. The larger building (on top) is the Harris Mill. The smaller one (white - on the bottom) is the PV Dyeing Co. Mill. The hydo power building is on the river across Main Street from Harris Mill.

Sounds like an excellent plan. :thumbsup: Not mentioned in the Projo article is Struever's proposal to use small hydro at the Royal Mills in West Warwick--assuming that this is still in the works.

good catch Greg - I forgot about that part of the RM project myself!!

This small area of Coventry (and WW - right over the line) could slowly mold into a nice little dense area with a riverwalk/bikepath, public bus, and adequate amenities within walking distance (barber shop, restaurant, some retail in PHX square and groceries).

and if they develop the mill site that just burned down a couple years ago on the other side of PHX square too...
