Court Square Pilot Project Coming Summer 2021

GREENFIELD – The long awaited Court Square Reconfiguration Project will be seeing some action this summer as the City moves forward with piloting the project ahead of a more permanent reconfiguration in the future. This plan originally came forward following the 2017 municipal planning activity with a goal of creating more quality open space around the City Common using a combination of jersey barriers and moveable planters. This summer’s pilot project will be a great opportunity for residents and visitors to use this space while allowing the City to receive important feedback on the project.

According to Greenfield’s Community and Economic Development Director, MJ Adams, “This project has been in the works for some time and I’m thrilled to see the pilot program going forward this summer. The pilot will be an important opportunity for the City to get a sense of this project going forward and work out any potential issues. We look forward to receiving that feedback.”

Mayor Roxann Wedegartner stated, “I’m really excited about the Court Square pilot project moving forward this summer. We will finally have a great opportunity to see it in action. I’m a huge fan of this project and look forward to bringing this unique, accessible pedestrian plaza to Greenfield for our residents and all visitors to the City.”
