Marie Canine Plaza repair bids requested
The Marie Canine Plaza was constructed in 2002, funded by a grant from the Montgomery County Community Foundation (MCCF). Crawfordsville Main Street (CMS) has responsibility for maintaining the plaza, funded by a continuing grant from the Marie Canine Trust. The pergola needs extensive refurbishing to replace some of the trim boards that surround the structural elements of the trellis, and repaint the entire structure.

A committee was formed to consider options for the repair, including possible updates to the structure. Three designs were prepared, and public comment was sought.
