Old Town Square Getting Facelift

After 30 years, it's time to refresh Old Town Square. As part of the vibrant Downtown experience, the public plaza portion of Old Town Square has been heavily used over the last 30 years. The infrastructure is reaching the end of its lifecycle and maintenance costs have increased, making it more feasible to create and implement a renovation plan. The Downtown Development Authority and its project team are committed to creating a high-quality, public gathering space that accommodates a variety of activities.

See the DDA's website to stay up-to-date on the project.
