We once again appreciate this Market Square update from Nancy Roulston, Manager of Engineering, Infrastructure & Development Services with the City of Stratford.
The latest update – the fencing should come down today or Wednesday and the square will be open for pedestrians and parking. The pay - by - license machines are installed and operational – one at each end of the square. The legacy art project will remain covered until unveiling on Canada Day. The water feature is finished, but still needs to be programed and will not be turned on until that is all worked out. The electric car charging station is not operational yet, but we will let everyone know when it is ready. As for more flowers – there will be hanging baskets on the light poles in the centre, and I believe there are two more planters available, we just have to work out suitable locations where they will not be in conflict with all of the uses that will be occupying the open spaces.
CANADA DAY IN MARKET SQUARE
Here is a link to the afternoon agenda for Canada Day festivities in Market Square. After the morning activities along Lakeside Drive, the focus turns to the Square; there will clowns, faced orating, musicians and bands (Dan Stacey, Kolton Stuart and others) on a huge stage in the Square. Also look for Judy's School of Dance, the annual Bronze Star Awards, food stations and more.
The official ribbon-cutting ceremony opening the new Market Square begins at 12:45pm and includes the unveiling of the Sesquicentennial Legacy Project.
