As part of a plan to transform a downtown parking lot into a vital community square, PPS developed a program of uses and temporary structures that began to make a difference within six months of starting the project. The formerly vacant space next to City Hall is now the site of constant activity, including farmers’ markets, plays and even weddings. The new square is a popular meeting place for city workers, visitors and shoppers. The square is one of several short-term improvement programs, in addition to a long-term plan, to address the deficiencies of the downtown that PPS developed with the community. In the long-term, PPS defined five key development projects to create a unique, mixed-use arts and entertainment district downtown.
