The Groundbreaking for The Common Park, was held on Tuesday, October 17th at 1:45 PM in the Central ARTSTATION Engine Room (due to the rain) kicking off the official ‘start’ of the construction! City officials, neighbors, and lovers of downtown all gathered together to celebrate the 2.4 acre greenspace that will be a cornerstone of redevelopment for the 9-block area.
The construction company Boggs and Poole plan to start work as soon as possible. The park is scheduled to be completed in 6 months, in time for the summer of 2019! However, the completion date is dependent on the weather.
Private donations are still being sought for several art amenities within the park. Naming rights for several locations are still available!
