SALISBURY, Md.- Plans are moving forward to build a new town square in the downtown Salisbury area.

On Monday night, the Salisbury City Council voted to select a company called Barkers Landing Excavation, which will complete phase one of construction.

The entire town square will face the downtown parking garage and extend into a section of parking lot one right across the street.

Mayor Jake Day said the rest of lot one has been sold with plans to turn that space into a mixed-use building with businesses and apartments.

Phase one of the project will focus on the area right next to the garage.

"Phase one is essentially from the curb line of North Division Street between the parking garage and there, and the curb line of Circle Avenue," said Day.

Bike racks, seating, and a food truck pad will all be added during phase one.

"[The town square] will be the cultural center, really, in terms of outdoor events. This is where our farmer's market is going, actually started this past Saturday. This is really where our community gatherings will happen throughout the year," said Day.

The cost for phase one of the project is just under $300,000, which was funded in 2017 and 2018 with state support.

Day said construction on phase one should start by June and be complete by the National Folk Festival in September.
