Fountain Square fence should be coming down in the next week


Somerset —

M2D Design Group and Bell Engineering are responsible for the look of the new square.
Superfluous spring showers delayed the project’s timetable earlier this year. Workers will get the sod in place in the next couple of weeks, but planting the bushes and flowers probably won’t take place until October, due to the oppressive summer heat.
However, with the sod and mulch in place, “it will start looking close to completion,” said Bourne.
Oh yes, and a pedestal in now in place for the return of the statue of Sen. John Sherman Cooper — Bourne suggested the likeness of the distinguished Senator from Somerset may be reclaiming its rightful place on the town square in the next couple of weeks.
With the fountain likely ready to go in August, Bourne is planning to have a dedication ceremony at that time.
“I’m so excited and relieved,” she said of the project’s progress. “I’m just ready for people to be able to enjoy it and make it part of our town’s history.”
