Do you agree with City Council’s choice for the City Market’s permanent home?

The City Council selected the Market Plaza proposal submitted by local builder Keith Woodard at a meeting last Monday night. A total of four proposals were submitted.

Woodard intends to purchase and redevelop a city-owned parking lot into a nine-story building that will have homes, offices and stores. The proposal envisions an L-shaped building with retail frontage on Water Street and Second Street Southwest. The City Market would be held in a half-acre public plaza with enough space for 115 vendor stalls. The building would feature 18,000 square feet of retail space, 58,000 square feet of commercial space and 67 apartment units.
