Parking Lot to Become Outdoor Plaza

A parking lot at the corner of Chestnut and Breckenridge is now destined to become an outdoor plaza as part of the new Breckenridge Commons. The Henderson City Council has voted to donate the city owned lot to the Embassy Cultural Center Foundation, which helped raise money for the construction of a new library and performing arts center on Breckenridge Street. The lot was donated on the condition that the foundation pays for landscaping the area and that the work is done before July of 2017. The foundation has also agreed to construct an outdoor pavilion near the Montgomery Street portion of the lot.
