Want to hang out at Civic Plaza?
It may not sound like an appealing proposition today, but there’s a new push to make the Downtown square a more popular and inviting community gathering space. And they want your input.
Southwest Airlines on Wednesday announced that Civic Plaza was among six public spaces to receive grants through Heart of the Community, a Southwest-funded place-making program that helps “re-imagine and activate important, under-utilized local public spaces.”
The grant is valued at about $200,000, with $100,000 coming in cash and the rest in expert guidance and technical assistance.
