On Wednesday evening, Brown, Richardson and Rowe presented two City Hall Plaza design alternatives to Brockton residents for their input. BRR showed different ways to rehabilitate the plaza around this historically important building. Improvements include: a new accessible amphitheatre, new seating areas in sun and shade, a place for a farmers market, places for civic celebrations and musicians, new historically appropriate lighting, street furniture, decorative paving, and preservation of memorials on the Plaza that play an important part in the City’s history.
The meeting was sponsored by the City of Brockton Mayor’s Office, the Brockton Redevelopment Authority and the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, Gateway City Parks Program.
In 2007, the Patrick Administration established the Gateway City Parks Program to advance park equity and improve open spaces in 24 designated “Gateway Cities.” This program is funding the design in Brockton. Brown, Richardson & Rowe, Inc. is currently assisting the Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs (EEA) with park projects in support of this important state-wide parks initiative throughout the Commonwealth.
