You may recall Architects Anonymous came up with a very promising plan for these parcels of land that were the inspiration for the Market and for saving the old Duron building for community use. The community use building is set to begin construction, and now the community has a say in how to create a dynamic outdoor space that acts as a gateway to the City.
Here's the City's release and agenda for tonight. We hope to see you there!
