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.
