Santa Rosa’s Old Courthouse Square reunification project is nearly finished. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports the new plaza, which city planners hope will revitalize and unify the city, is set to be dedicated this Saturday.
Fears of dragged out construction downtown stalled the project many times over the years, but Mayor Coursey says a simpler plaza design and a quick paced build-out helped get this version of the project through.
Several businesses along Old Courthouse Square were affected by the construction. Treehorn Books manager Grant Hotaling is looking forward to the new plaza opening up again.
The dedication ceremony for Old Courthouse Square is this Saturday, April 29th at 12:30 p.m. It will be followed by a celebration including the Santa Rosa Symphony Brass Quintet, a farmer’s market, a wine and beer garden and many other activities.
