Diggin' Up Decatur Square

The area around the community bandstand is fenced off while crews repair the soil.

If you haven't noticed, a big section of the Decatur Court Square is now off limits to pedestrians.

Work crews have fenced off the area around the community bandstand so they can dig up soil trampled and hardened over the years by the feet of festival goers.

The work should take about two months, meaning the area will be inaccessible during the over Labor Day weekend.

The work, according to Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon, will include "removal of compacted soil around the bandstand, installation of a waterproof liner, drainage system, structural soil mix, irrigation system and laying a new Bermuda turf lawn. Several declining trees will be removed and replaced with trees, shrubs and other landscape improvements."

Here's a previous story about the project:

It would be too bad if workers accidentally bulldozed that precious Ga-zee-bo. A concert stage could then be intelligently located at the end of the green space.
