Solomon, Kansas
Following the commencement of design for their downtown beautification project, building owners in the improvement area decided to renovate their building facades to enhance the overall streetscape. Many of the buildings had been in disrepair for many years and the downtown revitalization project provided the motivation for the building owners to upgrade their buildings.  The improvements have resulted in increasing property values and a better work environment for those employed downtown.
Two unsalvageable buildings, located on adjacent lots, were donated by their owners to the City of Solomon to be included in the project. They were removed and a central plaza, complete with pavilion, was constructed for use as a community gathering place for a variety of events.
The project won the ACEC/Kansas Cities Public Improvement Award in the Cities Under 5,000 population category.
