County Executive Isiah Leggett will be joined by County Councilmember Valerie Ervin and local business and community leaders to break ground for the Veteran’s Plaza/Civic Building project in downtown Silver Spring.
When construction is completed the 1.5 acre site will contain the new 42,000 square-foot Civic Building that will be fronted by the three-quarter acre Veterans Plaza, featuring a brick surface surrounded by open space and trees. The Plaza will be the site of a memorial to local veterans of all wars, host year-round activities, including concerts, markets and festivals, and be converted to an ice rink from November through March.

Note to Editors: Entry to the groundbreaking site will be down the steps leading from the parking lot behind Whole Foods.
