Meeting seeks input on Clifton Plaza design

Clifton Town Meeting (CTM) will hold a community meeting to review and discuss designs for the Clifton Plaza project this evening at 7:30 PM at the Clifton Recreation Center, 320 McAlpin Avenue.

Architects from KZF Design and the CTM Plaza Committee will seek community input into preliminary designs for the new public space on the former site of Bender Optical, on Ludlow Avenue across from its intersection with Telford Street.

Resident feedback will be used to develop a final design.

The new plaza is meant to serve not only as a connection between the Merchant's Lot and the Ludlow Avenue business district, but also as a functional community space that could feature permanent seating, an information kiosk, a performance platform, lighting, and other built elements.

Those who cannot attend the meeting can still submit feedback to the CTM Plaza Committee by e-mail to with "Plaza" as the subject line.

The $300,000 construction cost is fully funded.
