The City wanted to revitalize their historic downtown area with a sustainable, year-round public gathering place.
SEH landscape architects helped the City develop promotional design materials to build community support and funding for a new downtown central park. Building upon this successful effort, the SEH team provided final design and construction services for a multi-seasonal park plaza serving as the centerpiece of the historic downtown. The park integrates sustainable site design practices on multiple levels, including rain gardens, locally produced building materials, LED lighting, and creative site irrigation.
