Which of the following areas deserve the most economic development attention?

Posted 7/18/11

One of gubernatorial candidate Lincoln D. Chafee’s refrains was the need for the state to leverage its assets, chief among them Providence’s Knowledge District, the T.F. Green Airport district (which includes the recently completed Interlink intermodal transportation hub) and Quonset Business Park.

He also has said that the state’s development efforts should not avoid the city and town main streets.

Now that he is governor, he has said much the same thing. But, in a world of limited resources (and few resources are more limited than the state’s, with its multibillion dollar unfunded retirement benefit liabilities), which of the four assets should be first in line for any help the state can give?
