The Kellogg Park fountain is one of Plymouth’s most recognizable landmarks. Turning on the fountain is a rite of spring while closing the fountain marks the end of the season. The below notice comes from the Downtown Development Authority. It looks like changes are in the air!
The City of Plymouth Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is embarking on a major program to make upgrades to Kellogg Park and the water fountain in the center of the park. This is a DDA led project with the hope of having the upgrades completed by July 2017, in time for the City’s 150th Anniversary.
The DDA in cooperation with the Wilcox Foundation is funding the initial design concepts. The DDA has previously accepted proposals from a number of firms and they selected the design team from Russell Designs of Northville and WESCO Fountains of Florida to begin the conceptual designs the project. The total project is expected cost one million dollars, which is to be raised through private and community funding.
Recently, the DDA hosted a community input session where preliminary designs were revealed and input was provided. The DDA is now making those preliminary designs available on their web site and is seeking additional input.
