All Jonesboro residents are invited to attend a public meeting to offer their input on the proposed Broad Street Plaza Project which is anticipated to stimulate new activity in the downtown core and serve as a linchpin in the revitalization of the entire block between Broad Street and Riley Way. The vision for this project is to reinforce downtown Jonesboro with the addition of a purposeful outdoor civic space that can serve as a destination, similar to those created in recent years for other revitalized cities in the Atlanta region.
Over the past few months, city officials have worked to attain ownership of all properties just south of the Firehouse Museum on West Mill Street, including the parking lot adjacent to Church Street. The city will demolish those buildings to provide an area boasting a linear green space. All utilities on Broad Street and the surrounding area will be placed underground to enhance the ambiance of the area.
The Public Meeting will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12 at the Jonesboro Firehouse Museum located at 103 West Mill St.
