Liberty's downtown received a much needed update in 2016-2017 thanks to a voter approved Economic Development Sales Tax.
The City dedicated $5 million to public infrastructure improvements within the downtown area. Highlight of the project included reconstruction of the streets, sidewalks and utilities around the Liberty "square" area. Sidewalks are now a wider, more pedestrian friendly 14 feet in a number of sections. New landscaping and crosswalks define the intersections and even parking was upgraded.
As seen in the pictures, the reconstruction has become the backdrop to a new rotating sculpture program that brings in new 9-12 sculptures each year.
