We’ve been listening to the Fillmore community to better understand what you want to see at Gene Suttle Plaza. Gene Suttle Plaza is a large open plaza that serves as the front door to many neighborhood businesses. It is a crossroads for people on their way to the grocery store, the Fillmore’s restaurants and stores, and community institutions.
We’ve met with local businesses, City leaders, and community stakeholders and we’ve heard that people would like Gene Suttle Plaza to be more active, such as by offering tables and chairs for people eating lunch at local businesses. So whether you’re going to the grocery store, the library, school, or a restaurant in the Fillmore, you should experience a space that is active and welcoming. The improvements below aim to fulfill those desires that the Fillmore community has expressed.
