“Thursday evening, I attended the Parks & Recreation Commission Meeting to hear the item on the initial draft conceptual plans for the redesign and renovation of Waldie Plaza and the discussion of changing the name to Waldie Plaza & Event Center.
The Commission provided a positive reception overall and good feedback, which will inform a revised draft.
This item will be brought to the City Council for discussion and direction at a later date.”
