The Town of Blackfalds is looking forward to completing a community plaza in the fall of 2022. The plaza located east of the Eagle Builder’s Centre and south of the existing parking lot has been named the ‘Border Paving Plaza’.
The 24,00 square foot area will provide the opportunity for year-long markets, festivals, performances, and other community events. It will also include a stained concrete deck, stairs, ramp, and natural gas fire pit.
“Over the past number of years, outdoor gatherings and events have been steadily growing in participation and popularity in Blackfalds, so it's very exciting that we are moving forward with the Border Paving Plaza project that will serve to be a focal point for many of these exciting events,” shared Mayor Jamie Hoover. “Along with completing the Eagle Builder Centre and the road realignment, this outdoor plaza will quickly become a central point of pride in our always improving community."
The budget for the space is $668,000 with 75 per cent approved through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund.
Construction will begin on the plaza this spring.
