Peavey Plaza 

Description: Revitalization of Peavey Plaza

Status:  On hold.

The City selected in November 2010 to provide landscape architecture services for the revitalization of the City-owned Peavey Plaza. A design was developed in 2011 in collaboration with a Community Engagement Committee, and the City Council approved the Concept Plan for that design in November, 2011. Construction documents for that approved design were largely completed by mid-2012.

A permit to demolish the existing plaza was granted in May of 2012, but a lawsuit to block demolition because of its historic significance was filed in June of 2012. In January, 2013, Peavey Plaza was formally added to the National Register of Historic Places. The lawsuit has yet to be resolved, and thus the scope of revitalization work that eventually might be completed, the schedule and the budget all are currently unknown.

Project Scope: Unknown at this time.

Schedule: Unknown at this time.

Budget: Unknown at this time. The 2010 Minnesota Legislature approved $2,000,000 in state bonds funds as a grant to the City for revitalization of the plaza.
