TD Council Sees Federal Street Plaza Concept

The Dalles City Council looked at plans for a public gathering place on Federal Street at their Monday meeting.  The public plaza would be between East 2nd and an alleyway, and a consultant’s presentation showed it as using stamped concrete and include seating and some trees and planters.  Mayor Rich Mays feels it would be an asset to downtown.  But it also came with a price tag about $150,000 over what is in the City and Columbia Gateway Urban Renewal Agency budgets for the project, and some Councilors expressed concern with that along with the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic and the future of the nearby former Tony’s Town and Country building.  Councilors will look at it again at a meeting in late September.
