The new owners of Horton Plaza have scheduled a public meeting on Wednesday for public input on the evolving plans for the downtown landmark’s park.

Stockdale Capital Partners and their design firm, Los Angeles-based Rios-Clementi-Hale Studios, will meet with community members from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 59 Horton Plaza, off Broadway Circle to the left of the Macy’s entrance.

The developer is seeking public feedback on the preliminary park designs that emerged from two previous public workshops.

“We want to create a place where people feel welcome, where locals and visitors, families and employees, will find enjoyment in the shade of the trees, the sharing of a meal with friends or catching an impromptu performance,” said Stockdale’s Edward Kaen.

“This workshop will help our project team delve deep into the potential of this place and help us address the obvious problems with the current design,” he added.

Rios-Clementi-Hale Studios recently completed renovation of Music Center Plaza in downtown Los Angeles.
