The fountain is located at the center of historic Main Street Park in the heart of downtown Monmouth. Our firm led the process of creating unique design options for remodel or replacement of the original concrete fountain structure, which had reached the end of its lifespan after nearly 80 years of weathering and use. Our firm developed 4 concept plans with varying degrees of preservation and replacement of the fountain, integrating new elements such as spray-play features, decorative plaza paving, permanent seating, and surrounding landscapes. The designs were vetted by the community through two public workshops. With approval from City Council, our firm prepared construction documents for the preferred alternative. We worked collaboratively with an artist, a fountain design specialist and a lighting designer. The project was completed in 2013.
