An expansion of the 1st Street Plaza is planned for the grassy area at the southeast corner of Main & 1st streets. The new public space, along with additional planned enhancements to the area, will make the already popular downtown plaza a welcoming spot to gather. It will offer a central location for fairs and festivals, entertainment and events, or just enjoying the views.​

Plaza Concept
