EP Council gives go ahead for Centennial Plaza

{gallery}/06_15_10/plaza{/gallery} The Eagle Point City Council unanimously approved a resolution for a design plan for the development of Centennial Plaza at the corner of Main and Royal in downtown Eagle Point.

The design is a result of five steering committee meetings with the combined Parks & Recreation and Economic Development committees with Galbraith & Associates.

The plan will include permeable pavers, a pavilion (pergola),  benches, raised planter/seat walls, a drinking fountain, bike rack, water feature, town clock, game tables and lighting. Tables will be removable to accommodate special events. There will be scrubs and trees. The background for the park is the brick wall of the building owned by Ron Grensky, a structure built in 1912, that now houses several small businesses.

Final details and materials will be studied during the design development and construction phases of the park.

The goal is to have the park dedicated on Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, marking Eagle Point’s Centennial. It is hoped construction can begin in the fall of this year.  By Nancy Leonard
