The City of Shelbyville’s downtown redevelopment project envisioned a pedestrian friendly district located in the heart of the city.
Now just months away from completion, one downtown business is ready to take advantage of the new look Public Square.
Barbara Rogers of Three Sisters Books & Gifts and The Bookmark: Coffee and Company, located at 7 Public Square and 9 Public Square, respectively, appeared virtually before the Board of Works Tuesday morning to request outdoor seating.
Rogers was requesting permission to add a two-top high table, two four-top tables and a six-top table outside the businesses in the newly-created pedestrian spaces.
“We do still have limited seating inside (at The Bookmark),” explained Rogers. “This will provide additional seating outside which helps with capacity … and it will look great too.”
