City of Johnston issued the following announcement on Sept. 17.
A 3D printed model of the proposed Johnston Town Center project will be on display during the remainder of September at the Johnston Public Library. The model provides a proportional 1/32″ representation of how the Town Center is planned to develop including the City Hall, trailhead, ice rink, and commercial buildings. In the summer, the center of the ice rink will be a splash pad. There will also be canopies that cover the area for shade during the summer to enjoy outdoor activities. While commercial building plans are expected to evolve, the eight proposed commercial buildings shown are in their expected locations to help layout the vision for future development.
A groundbreaking for the project is tentatively planned for October 22 and further details will be available at johnstontowncenter.com once details are finalized.
