The renovation of the marketplace is supposed to start next Monday.
The goal of this project is to change the area to an interesting event square. In the plans of Huittinen, the event square will add to the community spirit by offering a homely meeting place for all ages and bringing events to the middle of the city to support its appeal.
There will still be parking spaces around the market, but they will be more organized. There will also be space for a Christmas tree in the new layout.
The sellers of the market will be able to serve their customers from vans and booths.
There will be a stage, a shelter and a technical area by the Kirkkopuisto.
430 000 euros have been set aside for the reconstruction of the marketplace in the budget. Huittinen has also been granted 150 000 euros from the Leader-program.
The new marketplace should be ready by next autumn. Meanwhile, vendors can relocate to the parking area of Seurahuone and the old sports field and the bank square are great locations for events.
