McCoy Stadium Feasibility Study to Begin in July

Study to determine suitability for the site as Pawtucket moves forward.

Pawtucket – The City of Pawtucket, Mayor Donald R. Grebien, and the City Council have announced that, through CommerceRI’s Site Readiness program, a geotechnical study of McCoy will begin in July. The study, expected to be completed in August, includes assessing data from the area and checking stability of the site to determine the feasibility for its next use.

“Pawtucket continues moving forward, and the City is pleased to begin work on the geotechnical study,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “The study will determine the site’s allowable uses to come. I thank Governor Raimondo, CommerceRI, the Pawtucket City Council, and the Delegation for their continued partnership.”

“We have a number of potential options and need to have more clarity from the analysis on what can and cannot be done. We will be able to move forward looking at all of the possibilities,” continued Mayor Grebien.

Commerce RI awarded the City of Pawtucket a Site Readiness grant of up to $60,000 to perform a geotechnical study, including ground borings, in the area of McCoy stadium. The Site Readiness program partners the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation with municipalities and/or developers to fund municipal technical assistance and site-specific planning and improvements to catalyze development throughout Rhode Island.

The State and City have ownership of the stadium and land. Fuss and O’Neill will be conducting the geotechnical study including ground borings.
