The work being done at the plaza will address bricked areas that have settled and formed uneven walking surfaces. To level those areas, a concrete base will be poured before re-laying the brick pavers to meet ADA standards. Additional bricked areas are also being added to increase accessibility with every effort being made to preserve the existing trees. Areas getting a new surface are those most significantly worn due to the amount of foot traffic that Bo Diddley Plaza experiences.
Improvements to the plaza are being funded with the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax and are expected to cost $130,000.
