At the August 28, 2017 Council meeting, the Independence Square Park conceptual design was approved in a unanimous 5-0 vote.  There was a  discussion on various points of the project and in the end they echoed many of the same concerns that PRAB voiced regarding hopes that cost savings may be realized as the project moves through the design process while maintaining the integrity of the design.


Both Chair Deery and Vice-Chair Bauer were present at the meeting and presented the thoughts behind many of the decisions reached by PRAB regarding this project.
