Kick-off Meeting for the Center City Pedestrian Plaza


The public is invited to attend a kick-off meeting for the Center City Pedestrian Plaza on Thursday, August 18 at 6PM in the Heritage State Park Visitors Center.  The purpose of the meeting is to discuss plans to create a civic plaza on a vacant lot adjacent to the Proulx Parking garage on Dwight Street. Milone and MacBroom, an architecture and engineering firm, will facilitate the meeting to generate community feedback on a conceptual design for the site based on the unique perspective of the community.
 
This project will be led by the Office of Planning and Economic Development and the Department of Public Works.
 
“Community feedback is a vital part of this planning process,” Mayor Morse said. “This project complements the ongoing redevelopment efforts happening at Lyman Terrace and will create an attractive and inviting public space that increases connectivity and encourages pedestrian travel in the downtown.”
 
Members from the Office of Planning & Economic Development will be in attendance, as well as officials from the Holyoke Housing Authority.  The meeting will be held in Spanish and translated into English.
