Historic Courthouse Square Project March Update
The amphitheatre is taking shape on the Courthouse Square, with rock wall renovations nearing completion. Contractors are building a rock wall facade on the walls of the amphitheatre to pay homage to the rock wall motif that has always surrounded the square. Contractors estimate they are on schedule to complete the amphitheatre construction by the project's original deadline, but landscaping work is 30 days behind schedule due to heavy and frequent rains the past several months. Stay tuned for more updates about when the square will be finished! You can find several photos of recent progress and a timeline of developments below:
