    Nollen Plaza

    Now that they removed the trees. What is the city gonna do with this space? They don't turn on the fountain anymore either, which I don't understand.

    This area looks like crap now.

    75% of those trees blew over in a storm a month or two ago so they just took them all out.

    They have a plan to "revitalize" it.

    Doesn't matter what they do; the Seniomsed parties of the 80's will never be duplicated. Ah, memories.

    I personally think it looks better without the trees.

    Is that a new development? This isn't where these guys were camped out before. They were at the city park east of the state capitol bldg.

    Yes, they are currently fundraising to redo Nollen Plaza.

    Re: Nollen Plaza

    im glad the trees are out, I use to live next to it in the Plaza (the really tall building) and the homeless would sleep under the trees all day and night and then bathe in the fountain. All this while the homeless shelter is a few blocks away.
