City targets vacant space

April 25, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Reducing the high rate of residential and commercial vacancies in the city is the aim of a new subcommittee of the City Council that will hold its first meeting on Monday.

The formation of the subcommittee was spearheaded by freshman Councilman Garrett Mancieri and was approved by the council recently. Mancieri is now the chairman and other appointees include David Soucy, president of Soucy Insurance Agency; Denise Sierra, president of the Burrito Co. restaurant; Sandra Saillant of Shear Odyssey Hair Salon; and Thomas Wrona, a former teacher.

“Are you tired of seeing empty residential and commercial properties?” said Mancieri, an independent real estate agent. “So are the members of this sub-committee and we are ready to begin our work to move Woonsocket in a better direction.”
