Felix Street Square Retractable Gates Project: This informational page was created so that the public can be educated on the facts surrounding the Felix Street Square project.
Safety is our number one concern.
The closures will only be used during event days to protect individuals going from the park to the concessions building and vendors that are set-up along Felix Street.
There has been no discussion about gating in the park or charging admission to enter the park. The events will remain free to the public.
Replica of the "Welcome" arch that was erected in 1918 to greet returning solider's from World War I to be placed at 8th and Felix. This arch will welcome individuals coming into the downtown district.
When the closures are not in use, the columns will be visually appealing.
The use of cones and street closure signs do not look appealing and are often times moved by the public.
Questions, comments and concerns are welcome. Please contact Rhabecca Boerkicher at 816-233-9192
