The long awaited revised plan for Nollen Plaza  designed by New York architect Ken Smith for the Greater Des Moines Civic Center will be unveiled for public response at two identical meetings at 11:30 am and 4:30 pm in the Stoner Theater:

Advance information indicates that Smith's plan includes preserving the concept of the Peace Garden founded by Bishop Maurice Dingman and Rabbi Jay Goldberg.
