Community Preservation Act Proposals
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Union Square resident Rob Buchanan has put together two proposals for improvement of the Union Square area with regard to both functional and æsthetic benefits. Both of these proposals were endorsed by the USNC board at the May 14th general meeting.
To see the slides Rob has prepared and placed into PDF format, select the links below, either in the headings or (invisibly) on the images. The PDFs will be displayed in a new browser tab.
Proposal One: Restoration of Firehouse Cupola
This proposed project would fund a feasibility study to estimate the costs and necessary steps to restore the historic cupola and clock tower on the old Union Square Fire Station at 92 Union Square.
Proposal Two: Washington Street Park
The Washington Street Sidewalk Park project would include the design and installation a small year-round public seating area and planters located on an existing sidewalk that is approximately 12 to 15 feet wide in an area of Union Square that has seen increasing foot-traffic and a growing retail presence.
