Plans for Glendale Village Square shown to public

The results of three months of public meetings and input for the Glendale Village Square Project were shown off to the public on August 20.

Prepared by TEC Engineering, Inc. and Yellow Springs Design, the plan shows options for sidewalk and crosswalk brick pavers, outdoor tables and benches, drinking fountains, bike racks, tree grates, and other street furniture.

The site plan also calls for adding a seat wall at the northwest corner of the site and extending the existing stone wall island.

Improvements are estimated to cost approximately $520,000, with 80 percent of the funding coming from an Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments Transportation Enhancement Grant.

Plans will be finalized late this year, with construction scheduled for spring 2010.
