First Street Zocalo taking shape!

Construction is well underway and before long Immokaleans will have a beautiful new public gathering spot at the First Street Zocalo! 

Work began earlier this month and crews have been working feverishly molding and polishing the once-vacate lot at the corner of First Street and Main Street into a gem of which the entire community can be proud.

Together with a companion gathering spot at Main and 9th Street, the plazas serve as linchpins of the Immokalee Public Realm Plan which won the 2010 Award of Merit from the Florida Planning & Zoning Association.

Collier County Commissioners approved the purchase of the two lots at the corner of Immokalee's First Street and Main Street in 2012 and awarded the First Street Plaza design contract to Naples architect David Corban in January 2013. Surety Construction Company is building the plaza. 

In addition to a community gathering and celebration spot, the zocalo will also serve as a warm, new "Welcome" sign to Immokalee's visitors arriving from the south and east.
