With many projects underway and upcoming events in the planning stages, theres plenty of community wide excitement in the Town of Holland.
Earlier this week plans were unveiled for an ambitious downtown project called Holland Commons.
Planned for the corner of Main and Fourth Streets (next to the Holland Post Office), Holland Commons once completed, will provide the community’s downtown with character and allure like few small towns in the area.
With the approval of the Holland Town Board and the leadership of Holland Events, Incorporated, Holland Commons will celebrate the town’s past, present, and future.
The initial project phase includes four focus features: a decorative metal gazebo, a commemorative state of the art flagpole acknowledging the community’s men and women serving the nation; a Holland, Indiana, USA sculptured sign – made of Indiana limestone and including our community history – welcoming guests; and a green space with native trees and bicycle racks providing shade to guests and enhancing wellness to citizens.
Complementing the commons will be decorative metal benches and lamp posts beautifying the downtown. Upgrading sidewalks and parking spaces will enhance the area for future growth.
The most enduring feature is completing the project for Indiana’s Bicentennial planned for December 11, 2016 utilizing funds collected by current and past patrons of Holland and Cass Township!
