Summer Fun in Columbia City!

Thomas Marshall Plaza

The Thomas Marshall Plaza will encompass the entire 21×88 lot. It will have a paver sidewalk through the park with three paver patio areas. Four teakwood planter boxes will span the property line adjacent to the alley to prevent cars from driving into the park. Flowering plants, shrubs and trees will provide a lush and attractive surrounding (see attachment TMP rendering). The requested $9,341 Downtown Enhancement Grant funds will be used toward the construction and installation of the park. In addition, a $10,500 grant has been committed from the Community Foundation of Whitley County for the construction and installation of the park. Three Birds Casual, a local outdoor furniture company, has committed $13,248 in-kind of teakwood furniture pieces including two benches, two square dining tables, eight armchairs, and four planter boxes. Fahl Colors, a local landscape company, has committed &750 in-kind for design, labor and materials. Columbia City has committed a $2,000 contribution for construction and grant administration.

Thomas Marshall, a lawyer from Columbia City, was most famously the 28th Vice President of the United States under Woodrow Wilson. He was also the Indiana governor who ended child labor in Indiana and a friend of the Gates family – the original developers of the ‘Alice’ building.

Columbia City Aquatic Facility

Columbia City is in the process of raising 3.5 million dollars to replace our sixty year old pool.  This new aquatic facility would not only have a lap lane pool, but it would also have a very large area for young kids and families to play.  There would also be two slides, a vortex circular current area, and plenty of other fun amenities for families to enjoy.
