City of Mattoon Approves Environmentally Sustainable Park
This depiction may change in the final design process.
The Lumpkin Family Foundation is pleased to announce its partnership with the City of Mattoon in creating an environmentally sustainable green space in the center of Mattoon at the southwest corner of Broadway Avenue and 17th Street. Mattoon City Council made the decision to move forward with the project at its July 15 meeting. Click here to read the article.
The Mattoon Heritage Park project would be an attractive, multi-functional space which would provide a focal point for downtown, amplifying Mattoon’s unique sense of place and improving its environmental quality.
Sustainable design elements, such as the park’s dense tree canopy, bioswales and native flowerbeds, will efficiently manage storm water and reduce the urban heat island effect, while creating a soothing and beautiful gathering place to eat, take a break from work or wait for a train.
