The City of Bremerton is proud to announce the area on 4th Street between Pacific and Washington Avenue will be officially renamed Quincy Square on 4th.
Mayor Greg Wheeler received a letter by Fed Ex today (Tuesday, January 22) from Quincy Jones that Jones “would be honored and humbled to have my name grace the city’s new downtown district.”
With this signed letter, the City of Bremerton has official approval to rename the street slated for redesign and construction as Quincy Square on 4th.
“Quincy Jones has an incredible history where he discovered his love of music in Bremerton as a youth. We are incredibly proud that Mr. Jones gave his blessing and we are thrilled to rename the plaza in his honor,” said Mayor Greg Wheeler. “I envision Quincy Square on 4th offering an event every week, from music and festivals to cultural performances, and becoming a major attraction for residents as well as visitors.”
Design plans for the redeveloped site show an area for performance and a space that can be blocked off to traffic and expanded to accommodate larger gatherings during events. The City of Bremerton is redeveloping the new public plaza.
Mayor Wheeler sought formal approval after initial design plans to redevelop the location into a public space for events suggested renaming it to Quincy Square on 4th.
“It’s a wonderful tribute to Quincy Jones but we believed it was important to receive official permission before moving forward with using his name,” said Mayor Wheeler.
Mayor Wheeler thanks the Fourth Street Action Group and the many groups and individuals for their continued participation and public support for Quincy Square on 4th. “The City’s redevelopment will help transform the area into an exceptional location for music and arts events due to their continued commitment to this project,” added Mayor Wheeler.
The Quincy Square on 4th Street project is currently under design. A second public meeting is slated for early April and will provide another opportunity for public input. The current schedule calls for the design to be completed in August of this year and additional grant funding to be obtained by the end of the year to enable construction in 2020.
