The City of Mishawaka Historic Preservation Commission celebrated National Historic Preservation Month, starting the first full week of May, by placing signs in the front yards of over 75 homes and businesses that have historic significance in the community or wish to support historic preservation.
The City will hold a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at Honor Park on Normandy Drive, on Wednesday, May 20th at 9:30am to celebrate the recent renovation of this Veteran Memorial.
Mishawaka Mayor David Wood has announced the opening, ribbon cutting and naming of the recently completed landscaped parkway connecting Capital Avenue (SR 331) at milepost 83 of the Indiana Toll road with Fir Road. The ceremony will take place on Thursday April 16, 2015 at 3:00pm at the east end of the parkway at the corner of Capital Avenue and the parkway entrance. This roadway will serve as a new gateway into the north side of Mishawaka and was made possible by the donation of over eleven acres of right-of-way for the construction of the 4,000 foot long parkway.
Mishawaka’s Department of Code Enforcement is working hard to complete their sixth Top 100 program, which addresses the city’s 100 most blighted structures each year. Currently, 82 of the predetermined Top 100 cases have been addressed.
