Citizens and elected officials gathered Friday afternoon for the ceremonial groundbreaking for the Old Milltown Plaza at 5th Avenue South and Maple Street. The City of Edmonds purchased the site in 2008 with the intent of preserving the central downtown open space for community use. The Edmonds Floretum Garden Club assisted in the design process, along with several other community members.
