Earlier this evening, people gathered in Seventh Street Park, a.k.a. the Public Square, for the unveiling of the conceptual design for the restoration of this historic public space.
The plan for the park that was unveiled today will be used as the basis for a grant application to be submitted by Friends of the Public Square (FOPS) in New York State's Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process. Applications are due on July 29.
At tonight's gathering, Katherine Kanaga of FOPS explained that they are anticipating the restoration of the park will be done in three phases: Phase 1 will address the paths through the park and the infrastructure; Phase 2 is the fountain; Phase 3 involves the sidewalks around the park and the planting of street trees.
Tomorrow, Saturday, June 25, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., there is a benefit at Hudson Hall to celebrate FOPS first anniversary and to raise funds for the restoration of the Public Square. Click here to purchase a ticket to the event, or you can simply show up and pay at the door.
