On Monday, April 5, 2021, City of Avondale broke ground on a significant capital project that will be a showpiece at The BLVD, an exciting new development along Avondale Boulevard. City officials were joined by Willmeng Construction Inc., a Phoenix-based commercial general contractor, and J2 Engineering & Environmental Design for a virtual groundbreaking ceremony on the new water features project at the corner of Avondale Blvd. and W. Dale Earnhardt Dr., in Avondale.
“This has been a long-time vision of the City Council and leadership,” said Kenn Weise, Avondale Mayor. “I was honored to have been on a previous City Council that set the wheels in motion for the long-range plans for the area then known as City Center. Avondale has come a long way, and today, The BLVD is poised to attract the quality development and investment that will make Avondale a premier destination in Valley.”
In October of 2020, Avondale City Council approved the plans for The BLVD Water Features project, featuring water features for the community to enjoy. The project includes two signature entrance water features, a one-acre lake, koi pond, splash pad, pedestrian bridges, and inviting landscaping.
