At the July council meeting, City Administrative Officer, Ron Dill, said he was very pleased to note that the city has received historic preservation tax credits of more then $54,000 for the Armory and Mess Hall renovation projects.
He also noted the Alexander Circle project is now in the hands of the developers and construction is expected to begin soon. Developers and city staff have held pre-construction meetings and will be meeting with the safety departments to determine a plan to protect the public during the construction period. Expect an announcement soon about access restrictions and other safety measures in the area.

The first phase of the project will include utility work, replacement of roofs on all buildings, asbestos removal and further development of the first five units. Once construction is complete, access will be opened and the grassy area in the middle of the project will become part of Tower Park. Plans are beginning for walkways, an overlook and other improvements.
