On April 10, 2018, the City Council granted final approvals for Phase 1 of the Civic Center Project, which will include an approximately 13,400-square-foot community center and a one-acre civic plaza. This development will serve as the City’s primary destination for community activities, and help drive economic development and social vitality in downtown.
The construction of Phase 1 is anticipated to begin in the latter half of 2019. The Town Fair Temporary Plaza will serve as an interim use before breaking ground on Phase 1, activating the vacant lot located at the corner of Capitol Avenue and State Street, and contributing toward an active and vibrant downtown for our community. This placemaking effort will introduce daily activities including food trucks, outdoor games, public art, music, a beer garden, maker spaces, and regularly scheduled community events. Selected pilot concepts can later be integrated into the permanent plaza.
