Master Plan for downtown Kellogg Park is being developed

There will be a plan for Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth.
Members of the Plymouth Downtown Development Authority Board have contracted with Wade Trim, the city engineering firm, to develop a master plan for the park, according to a prepared statement from the group.
The idea, according to a spokesman, is to keep the changes minimal, with a select number of enhancements added to the park.

In a draft report presented to the DDA board members during the April 13 meeting, a Wade Trim representative presented the possibility of widening the walkways from 8 ½ feet to 10 feet, widening the Main Street promenade, new benches, defining entrances to the park and designing Penniman Street to be more people and event friendly by eliminating curbs  with back-in, angle parking.
Public input on the draft proposal was taken at that meeting. A summary of those opinions can be found at DDA-meeting-KP-comments. The DDA also solicited input on website and social media platforms. Those responses can be found at:
A new Kellogg Park fountain is not part of the Master Plan. However, the fountain has been designed with construction expected to begin in the spring of 2021, according to DDA Director Tony Bruscato.
“Any decisions on enhancements to Kellogg Park won't be made until the DDA board discusses its Strategic Plan for the next calendar year,” he said.
Meetings of the DDA board meetings take place at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. The meetings are open to the public and public comments are welcome. Agendas can be found at, he concluded.
