Clifton Plaza in final design phase

Clifton Town Meeting (CTM) reports that the final design for Clifton Plaza is being developed by KZF Design in conjunction with CTM's Plaza Committee, with the goal of putting the project out for bid within the next few weeks.

In development since 2007 and refined through several public meetings, the plaza will replace the demolished Bender Optical building on Ludlow Avenue with a functional community space that could feature permanent seating, an information kiosk, a performance platform, lighting, and other built elements.

Decorative elements will tie the space to the adjacent Merchant's Lot.

In December 2008, CTM reported that the $300,000 project cost was fully funded.
