Public invited to Founders Plaza Phase II Information Gathering Meeting


The public and local business owners are invited to attend the Founders Plaza (located on Main and Bridge Streets) Phase II Information Gathering Meeting on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 6-7 p.m. Members of the City’s Parks & Recreation staff and Norris Design will be in attendance to gather public input for this next phase of the project. Attendees must adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures.

Phase II will look at additional features, like options for a pour-in-place rubber play area for kids with climbing boulders, a possible performance area for street performers, a space for activities such as a large Christmas tree and an area for kids to visit Santa, a covered picnic table area, added plantings, festoon lighting, and more. 

This phase follows the May completion of phase 1 of Founders Plaza, which included landscaping, planting shrubs and trees, irrigation for plants, decorative concrete, planters, and installation of benches.

Pre-registration online is required to attend the meeting:
