Fountain Square is getting a new fountain in a project that’s been in the works for more than a decade. Work on the $650,000 in improvements will begin next week with the removal of the Pioneer Family sculpture that sits atop the current fountain. The new fountain will feature a reproduction of the original Lady Spray statue that watched over the original fountain. The old statue will be moved to GarfieldPark for now but will return to the Fountain Square neighborhood in a later phase of the project. Southeast Neighborhood Development, or SEND, is sponsoring a kick-off celebration for the work at 3 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Shelbi Street Café & Bistro Lounge.

  • Great news for FS! Cory, what happened to the RSS Feed?
  • I, of course, will be there.
  • [No title]
    Benjamin: Your guess is as good as mine. I've alerted our web folks. It's also frustrating that the comments don't appear
    in the order they were made! Hopefully we'll get all these issues fixed soon.
  • When is the estimated date of completion?
  • The project will be completed by November 23 of this year. Look for the fountain to show up sometime in mid-October
  • I think the design is very thoughtful, which doesn't always happen with TE projects because of the number of people that have to be involved. Very good job by Eric Fulford.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
