More About Block 34

What We're Doing

The City owns a vacant block in Downtown Stillwater known as Block 34.

Through the Block 34 Citizen's Task Force, options for the best use of the property and best designs for any structures on the property are being explored. The Task Force will then develop a site plan and present their recommendations to the Stillwater City Council.
