City of Hickory issued the following announcement on Sept. 20
In celebration of two historic milestones for Hickory’s bond program, the City of Hickory invites the public to attend the official ground breaking ceremony for City Walk and a ribbon cutting for Union Square on Monday, September 23.
The ground breaking ceremony for City Walk will take place at 12 p.m. in front of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, located at 629 8th Street NE, near Lenoir-Rhyne University’s campus. Parking will be available for the event in the church’s gravel lot on 8th Street NE, across from North Carolina Furniture Overstock.
The ceremony will include an opening invocation by Pastor Christy Lohr Sapp of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, followed by comments from Hickory Mayor Hank Guess, Hickory Bond Commission Chair Burk Wyatt, and Lenoir-Rhyne University President Dr. Fred Whitt.
For the safety of ceremony attendees, please note that the right westbound lane of 8th Street NE will be closed in front of the church.
Immediately following the historic ground breaking for City Walk, attendees are invited to The Sails on the Square in Downtown Hickory for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:30 p.m. to celebrate the Union Square renovations.
The ceremony will take place on the new multi-purpose shade structure and will include comments from Hickory Mayor Hank Guess, Hickory Bond Commission Chair Burk Wyatt, and Hickory Downtown Development Association President Julie Owens.
“These two events will mark significant achievements in the City of Hickory’s bond program and revitalization efforts,” said City Manager Warren Wood. “We hope the community joins in our excitement about the completion of one project and the beginning of construction on another, as we work to craft a strong future for Hickory.”
