SUBMITTED BY SEFENECH HENOK

AFTER A LONG TIME COMING, CONSTRUCTION ON THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED, DAVID STREET STATION HAS OFFICIALLY BEGAN. DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY HELD A RIBBON CUTTING TUESDAY AFTERNOON WHERE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY WATCHED AS THE FIRST WALL WAS KNOCKED DOWN. THE STATION WILL BE AN OUTDOOR PLAZA THAT WILL HOLD ACTIVITIES SUCH AS CONCERTS, FESTIVALS, AND EVEN AN ICE SKATING RINK. IT IS SET TO OPEN FOR CASPER'S ECLIPSE-FEST, AUGUST 2017. IT'S A DAUNTING PROJECT IN THE FACE OF A SHAKY ECONOMY...BUT SOME BELIEVE IT'S WHAT IS NEEDED TO HELP PUSH THE CITY FORWARD
