A Message From Lucinda Dohanian, Executive Director
When I say we’re in a lively election season this November, I’m not only talking about those running for public office, I’m also talking about the elections that take place every November here at Laurelmead. As a cooperative that is owned and governed by its residents, Laurelmead has six Resident Committees that work with management and advise the Board of Directors.
They’re all made up of residents that have been elected by their peers. (The Board of Directors elections take place in February.) I am genuinely impressed by how bright, accomplished, and engaged our residents are, and what excellent stewards they are of this special community. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me here .

 I look forward to hearing from you.
Face Lift at Laurelmead
After   conducting many interviews with a variety of design firms, a sub-committee of Building and Grounds, charged with the responsibility of selecting an interior designer, unanimously voted to present Joshua Shockley as its choice for the renovation project that will assess and then address changes to the main floor public spaces. Shockley expressed his basic design philosophy: “I believe my passion for interior design is driven first and foremost by a desire to problem solve. How can we make a space feel brighter? How can we make a space feel safer? Exciting? Relaxing? This is paired with a genuine curiosity about people and their experiences - people aren’t just shells or bodies that interact with an interior. I believe they are collections of experiences that add to an interior and vice versa.” 

Whistle Stop
The Laurelmead community continues to be a preferred whistle-stop for those running for election in 2018. Just to name a few… Governor Gina Raimondo stopped by for an exclusive Meet & Greet with the residents on October 16th. Gubernatorial candidate Mayor Alan Fung stopped by that same afternoon. Providence Mayoral candidates Mayor Jorge Elorza and Dianne “Dee Dee” Witman had a spirited discussion in our Odeon theater on October 30th. And Sheldon Whitehouse, who is seeking re-election to the US Senate, hosted a luncheon for the residents on Halloween Day. He was joined by US Congressman David Cicilline, Mayor Elorza and Peter Neronha, candidate for Attorney General. And since Laurelmead is a polling station for the surrounding neighborhood, our residents don’t even need to leave the building to cast their vote.
