Georgetown Strousse Park project breaks ground


The Strousse Park project is fully underway after nearly three years of planning. 

The project will renovate the area with new market stalls, a restroom and parking lot.

“We’re plotting along working on the foundations for the new shelter,” said Bob Hamilton, member of the Design Review Commission, in an update to the Georgetown Board of Selectmen about the improvements on July 26.

Referring to the new market booths and shelter, Hamilton elaborated that volunteer labor was previously brought up as a solution to keep within budget, but the foundation will be using contract labor instead. It will be close, but still within budget, he said.

While excavating beside the Kneisel & Anderson building, which began on July 12, they decided to cap the foundation wall which cost a few extra days of work. “Everybody is sitting less anxious about damaging the foundation to that historic building, so I think it’s money well spent,” Hamilton said.

He continues that the foundation should be done within the next few weeks, with heavy timbers and other materials coming in a few weeks as well.

Plans were originally approved by the Board on March 8 with the goal  to have the project completely finished by fall, in time for the Christmas Market.
