PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island commission has approved plans to begin accepting proposals to redevelop land near downtown Providence that was freed up by the relocation of Route 195.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1fWNtnm ) that the Route 195 Redevelopment District Commission on Monday evening gave the necessary approvals to begin seeking proposals from developers, businesses or institutions.

The commission is expected to post on its website Tuesday the steps prospective developers must follow. The information is in a nearly 140-page “developer’s toolkit” and an official request for information that were approved by the commission Monday.

A first round of development proposals must be submitted by May 1.

The commission is holding two public information sessions on Feb. 25 and March 25 for developers to tour the property and ask questions.
