Jasper- The City of Jasper invites all Dubois County residents to join in a celebratory ribbon cutting for the newly revitalized Courthouse Square on Friday, October 13 at 5:00PM.
The event marks the conclusion of a year-long comprehensive project that addressed infrastructure needs including roads and upgrades to water, sewer, gas, and stormwater drainage. ADA accessibility and compliance with State of Indiana regulations for crosswalks were also critical factors in the project.
Philanthropic support enhanced the project with $1.25 million raised by local donors to create four unique gathering spaces in each corner of the Square. The four quadrants offer areas for people to gather and socialize in the downtown area including a fire pit, wooden bench sitting area, swings, and outdoor café style seating. The redesign is a mix of new amenities while preserving the older and historic assets of the community.
Revitalizing our downtown is vital to economic growth and creating a supportive business environment for small business owners.
“We hope the community will join us in commemorating this milestone in our city’s progress,” said Mayor, Dean Vonderheide. “This is truly a giant step forward and cause for celebration.”
The ribbon cutting will take place on the west side of the Courthouse and will include a short performance from Jasper High School’s marching band. Handicap accessible parking is available at the parking lot next to City Hall.
