City to Host Fountain Square Renovation Project Open House March 10
The City of Evanston will host an open house public meeting on Tuesday, March 10 to present initial concept designs for planned improvements at Fountain Square.
The meeting will take place at the Shops at Sherman Plaza, located at 1614 Sherman Ave., and will include an open house/concept viewing from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., followed by a presentation and community discussion from 6:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Representatives from Teska Associates and City staff will present information on:
Public outreach efforts and community feedback
Initial concept designs, including a personal preference exercise
Next steps in the design process
The goal of the meeting is to gather community input regarding initial concept designs for the renovation project and establish overall design preferences.
The City is planning to renovate and improve Fountain Square Plaza. This area includes Sherman Plaza; Sherman Avenue, between Church and Davis Streets; and adjacent landscape areas. While certain plaza functions will remain, such as the Veterans Memorial and a fountain, the City has been gathering your thoughts on what additional amenities and activities you would like to see accommodated in the area.
