The Olneyville neighbourhood forms part of the industrial Providence Valley district, an area which has been in decline for 20 years. It is a district with high levels of poverty and unemployment, with a run-down housing stock, lacking green spaces and scattered with many empty brownfield sites. Regenerating the Valley district is one of the main measures outlined in the General Plan for Providence, which is based on cleaning up the industrial soils as the first stage to regenerate the impoverished neighbourhoods. The Steel Yard contributes with the action of reinforcing the sense of community in the residents by offering education and employment opportunities.
