Display at the library
the Reservoir: Pictures of buildings that are no more. 1915-2015
This year marks the 100th year memorial that changed the town of
Scituate and surrounding area. The states passed the action to create a
reservoir for the City of Providence and five villages are now completely off
the map of Rhode Island. During this shattering time for residents, the
Providence Water Supply Board meticulously captured photographic records of
every building that was under condemnation. Thanks to a loan from the
Providence City Archives the North Scituate Public Library has a two-month
display, highlighting properties and the people who had to leave their homes.
“These photos showcase some beautiful architecture, but also
capture some of the reactions that people had in this traumatic event,” says
Rachael Juskuv, reference librarian. “This hired photographer traveled to each
house and had to explain to each person what he was doing. It’s interesting to
see the subtle reactions he captured.”
The library houses a wide-ranging archive of oral and written histories by Scituate residents, but was very excited to find the extensive collection of photographs held at the Providence City Archives. This display will be at the library until July 1.
Notice of Public Open Houses
New Flood Insurance Rate Maps/Flood Insurance Changes
The Rhode Island Floodplain Management Program and FEMA will jointly host public open house meetings in Kent and Providence counties. New FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) will go effective in October 2015 for both counties. Flooding is the number one natural disaster in the United States so it is vital for property owners to understand their risk and how it may be changing with the release of new FIRMs. If you think you may be in a flood zone or are unclear how you may be affected, you may choose to attend the open house that is most convenient for you at any time between the hours of 4 - 7 pm. No formal presentations will be made and no appointment is necessary.
Representatives from FEMA, the State, and their mapping partners, will be available to answer flood risk and insurance questions, and will help property owners identify and understand how their risk may be changing. Residents are encouraged to bring their elevation certificates and/or flood insurance policies to the event in order to get the best information about how their flood insurance rates may change as a result of the new mapping and legislative insurance reforms.
