Residents gather to celebrate ribbon cutting of downtown Jasper square

With a ribbon cutting, live music, games, and food, the city of Jasper residents celebrated the completion of the renovated Downtown Square earlier this month.

For years, the City of Jasper worked to develop a plan to replace the historic courthouse square infrastructure and revitalize the downtown area. Nearly $250,000 in READI funding is being used to help fund important work happening below ground, too. READI funding will help replace waterlines over 100 years old in two phases — increasing the water quality, capacity, and pressure so more businesses and residents in the area have water access. The second phase of the project includes extending the courthouse square improvements to nearby streets.
