This is a bit of a fluff piece, but the article touches the surface on some of the upgrades to Rosa Parks Circle. Sounds like some of the materials Maya Lin proposed initially, that got value engineered out (granite seats instead of concrete), etc. are being added to the project. Also looks like the bathroom area is being re-cladded, upgraded stage, etc. 

there’s also a conservancy set up to preserving/ maintaining it in the future.

This is great, but it stinks that it's happening a year after we lost a summer's worth of RPC to the pandemic. That's two summers in a row without downtown's main gathering place featuring much gather

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Hindsight is 20/20, but it would have been ideal if they could have worked on this last summer when the city was basically mothballed. Joe

Also it's funny that this is proceeding while nothing happens to Lyon Square or Calder Plaza.
