Creating a Community Gathering Place »

September 9, 2021 2:35 pm

Taylorsville’s original 1997 General Plan called for the area surrounding Taylorsville City Hall to be a community “gathering place and activity center.” Now, nearly 25 years later, that 1997 vision has been realized with the construction of Centennial Plaza. This new community open space integrates Taylorsville City Hall and the newly constructed Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center and creates a place specially designed for future community gatherings. Learn how architecture, landscape, and urban design unite to help create a place of both beauty and function.
