Ashland will celebrate the completion of a redesign of the Plaza at 5 p.m. Friday, April 5.
The installation of water-permeable pavers, new lighting and low concrete walls that provide seating and protect landscaping has wrapped up.
Mayor John Stromberg and others will dedicate the community's newest piece of public art, the ceramic frieze on the Plaza seat walls.
Beverages and cookies will be served and the mayor will invite all who gather to raise their glasses in a community toast.
The brief ceremony will end with the burial of the 2113 time capsule.
