Residents weigh in on Centennial Plaza in online survey

Posted: April 3, 2017

East St. Paul residents who participated in an online community forum designed to get feedback on design features for Centennial Plaza ranked a stage and canopy and an urban plaza as their top picks for the legacy project.

The Centennial Plaza:  Your Community-Your Voice forum, asked participants to rank 10 design ideas using a scale of 1-10, with 1 being most important, and 10 being least important.

A stage and canopy was deemed most important by 66 per cent of participants with urban plaza a close second with 62 per cent support.

Green space was also popular among respondents, with 54 per cent favourability.  A seat wall was next, with 52 per cent support.  Rounding out the Top 10 are a water feature/fountain (48 per cent), games tables (46 per cent), fire pods (38 per cent), sculptural lighting (34 per cent), legacy/heritage element (30 per cent) and sculpture/art (25 per cent).

Participants were also asked for suggestion of design elements they'd like to see that weren't on the list. Concession stands/food carts were tied for the top spot with shade trees, colourful perennials and local plants at nine per cent. Other suggestions included picnic tables, bathrooms, a splash pad and a covered shelter/gazebo.

A request for proposals to provide consulting services for this project has been issued.  It closed March 30.
