Project Description

The renovation of Chico’s Downtown City Plaza brought new life to the once dangerous, dilapidated park. NMR’s renovation of the plaza created a new, welcoming space with a band shell/performance area, public restrooms, a water fountain, new landscaping all around, and a veteran’s memorial. A large Blue Atlas Cedar Tree was transplanted closer to the center of the park and is now used for the Community Christmas Tree Lighting every year. Today, the plaza is used for farmer’s markets, art shows, culinary festivals, and large city events.
