CUMBERLAND, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island Board of Education is expected to consider draft legislation that advances plans for a nursing education center on the edge of downtown Providence.

Plans for the shared University of Rhode Island-Rhode Island College nursing center are the centerpiece of a major proposed redevelopment of the vacant South Street Power Station. Under the plan, half the space would be used by the schools' nursing programs. The rest would be occupied by Brown University, initially with administrative offices.

The institutions are hoping to partner with a private developer on the $206 million project. It also calls for student housing; a restaurant and other retail space; space for startups and small high-tech companies; and parking.

The board is expected to vote Monday night.
