Town of Bristol / RWU Cooperative Committee

In September 2007, when Roger Williams University and the Town of Bristol reached agreement on the landmark PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) pact, a group comprising key representatives from both the town and the University was established to jointly consider items of mutual interest or concern.

In the years since, the Town of Bristol / Roger Williams University Cooperative Committee has provided an open venue for discussion and decision-making and has assisted in building upon a truly symbiotic relationship between both parties.

Through the Fund for Civic Activities – one of its most visible initiatives – as of summer 2012 the Committee has awarded $106,236 to local organizations and residents in support of more than 70 projects and initiatives designed to enhance the civic experience of Bristol residents.
