Construction starts today on Houdini Plaza
WHBY News reports that construction is supposed to start today on the Houdini Plaza renovation project in downtown Appleton, Wisconsin.
Jennifer Stephany of Appleton Downtown Inc. says they hope to finish the work before the first outdoor Farm Market in mid-June. She says they're already hearing from groups that are interested in hosting events there, and that's the impact they were hoping the improvements would have.
The renovations will cost $1.5 million. They include a fountain, and spaces for large and small events. The city is contributing $1 million, and there's a fundraising effort to collect the remaining $500,000.
