On December 17th, the city council will hear proposals for how to spend a $128,000 fund generated from hotel taxes.
The changes will include all of downtown, not just the plaza, and will be mostly aesthetic. Councilors say it won’t cost residents a dime, but there are some voicing concern.
About 500 people have signed a petition to change the color of the bricks in the plaza from the current grey to a color they say would be a bit more pleasing.
“The original plan that was given to us, the council, showed salmon colored pavers, not charcoal grey,” said City Councilor Carol Voisin. “So that’s what I thought was going to be there.”
Replacing the plaza bricks would cost around $20,000 out of $128,000 fund.
The council will hear proposals for renovations on December 17th.
