DM has learned that the city is looking to add more shade to Decatur Square.
Asst. City Manager Lyn Menne confirmed the city is working with local architect and artist Amy Landesberg to design a shade structure for the eastern end of the MARTA plaza.
Shade seems to be on the minds of event organizers of late. Sun-shades were put up around the bandstand at this past weekend’s Art Festival. It will be quite interesting to see what this structure looks like once plans are unveiled.
According to their website, Landesberg’s architecture firm, LP3 Architecture, also designed the plans for Fire Station #2 in Oakhurst and the renovations to the Decatur Recreation Center.
