A New Plaza is Coming to Downtown Madisonville
The City of Madisonville and First United Bank are taking the former municipal building on East Center Street and turning it into a plaza with greenspace, a stage and public art display.
First United Bank President and CEO Karen Glenn says the bank’s matching investment of up to $100,000 aims to bring people into the downtown area and support local business. $125,000 in coal severance funds from the Hopkins County Fiscal Court are funding site preparations for the plaza.
The city is preparing to take bids on the project and a groundbreaking ceremony is set for March 2.
