This event was a great success and we received nearly 200 individual pieces of valuable feedback. We will be providing feedback to a landscape architect who will develop concept options for improving the square. Once received, we will provide these options to the public for your thoughts!
The District is in the beginning stages of investigating options for redesigning the space to ensure it can be utilized in a way that is best for the community. Input received from residents during the event will be summarized and provided to landscape architects who will then use the information to create conceptual options that will be released later this summer.
Centennial Square is the traditional commercial core of Sparwood. While much of the commercial activity has shifted to Aspen Drive, Centennial Square still provides the best pedestrian-scale and community-oriented commercial area in Sparwood. Grants are available to support this type of investment in community infrastructure and economic development. This project aligns with Council's Strategic Priorities.
This project has four main phases:
Phase 1: Conceptual Design (August-October 2019). This phase is being supported by the Columbia Basin Trust in the amount of $9840 through the Trust's Community Outdoor Revitalization grant program.
Phase 2: Detailed Design (Early 2020 depending on funding)
Phase 3: Construction (To be determined)
Phase 4: Operation (To be determined)
This slideshow shows images of Centennial Square in the past, as well as conceptual plans that were developed through the years.
