Plaza proposed for courthouse square

The Pike County Fiscal Court unanimously gave its approval today to plans for a new park on the judicial center square. The park would include a walkway and picnic tables on the Division Street side of the complex, which currently has only a grassy field. Magistrates today voted to grant the city of Pikeville a permanent easement and license agreement to construct the park. For now, the proposal is still very preliminary. The city and the state Administrative Office of the Courts must still on weigh in on the matter.
