​Nobscot Plaza Public Meeting
January 11, 2017


City officials, plaza property owner, and architects presented revised plans at a community forum at the Heritage. Public interest was very strong with standing room only. The plans call for a mixed-use development of 163 apartments, retail shops along Water Street, and a CVS pharmacy at the corner of Water St. and Edgell Rd.
