Construction Update 9/19

The Splash Pad was tested last week and was everything we hoped it to be! It’ll be fun for kids of all ages during the day and beautiful at night with the LED lights.

The drinking fountain and the mister bar are already operational. We will activate the water bottle filling station on the drinking fountain in a couple weeks. A plaque will be installed by the Splash Pad control box that recognizes the Leadership Team and the key donors for their contribution in raising the funds to pay for the Splash Pad. Providing we don’t have too many rain days, everything substantial will be wrapping up […]

Stay tuned for details next week on a continued opportunity to donate using squares of the “concrete quilt” floor of the new market!

Construction Update 9/12

Some exciting things have been happening in the Plaza the last few weeks! Final paving is scheduled for this Friday.  Pavement Markings are scheduled for Monday. So with that said, the parking lot will be barricaded off for those tasks.

We will need to have full access to the lots, Elks Avenue, and parking along Harris Street and Cass Street so we can get everything paved in 1 day. Parking spot striping will be fairly quick but we need to provide time for it to dry before allowing anyone to park in the spaces. Smears are not good! Thank You in advance for parking elsewhere those days.

You have probably noticed all the concrete going in this week. We have had much better
temperatures for placing concrete.  They will continue power washing and then will seal it like they
did the alley sidewalk.

The stone work began on one of the columns, that is being done locally by Positive
Chimney and looks great!

Some of the additional Splash Pad components have arrived and will be installed tomorrow! Remaining pieces are being shipped next week. Everything will be wrapping up quickly on the whole Plaza as parts come in.

The latest rendering of The Market has been released and it’s going to fit the site beautifully! There are […]

Materials are being delivered this week for installation starting next week. Elk alley was paved and the Harris Street
