Design Approach/Narrative: The plaza is the focus of the Water Street Redevelopment District and promotes events thorough out the year. It is structured to cater to a variety of activities and features such amenities as a shaded amphitheater with lawn and stage facilities, shaded walk-ways between public facilities, large courtyards for major venues; a water entertainment center; The Veterans Memorial Wall; high mast lighting for night time events and piped sound systems that will be linked throughout Water Street.

The stage is set for this plaza to become THE core people-place for this proud and burgeoning community. The project has already been a major driving force in the redevelopment effort and, by doing so, provides the enhanced 21st Century identity to which the City aspire.
