Heritage Square Revitalization Project
In March, 2017, the City received a grant of $500,000 from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to fund improvements to both Heritage Park and to build a Downtown Skate Park. On April 27, 2017, the City Council reviewed the most recent design options for the redevelopment of Heritage Park and narrowed it down to two options.
A Public Meeting was held on May 18 where a Council subcommittee received additional public feedback regarding the final design. The design firm was given additional direction regarding the design and the results will be presented at an upcoming council meeting.
Both conceptual designs incorporate elements approved as part of the City's Downtown Master Plan adopted in 2015. Elements include an amphitheater, a spray park, public art display, shade structures and landscaping to enhance the area. Proposed funding includes $250,000 from the TPWD grant, $100,000 City matching funds, $100,000 from Project LOOP, $80,000 land donation, and $300,000 from the Tax Increment Finance fund.
Please contact your Council Subcommittee Members to provide comments on design selection:
