Shelby City Council has begun working on legislation for the development of Blackfork Commons, the new Town Square along Main Street in downtown Shelby.
  

Shelby Mayor Marilyn John said council reviewed legislation at their regular meeting Monday night to vacate Blackfork Circle which runs south to north from Blackfork Street.

"We're ready to go out for bids after the first of the year for the new central park we referred to as Blackfork Commons. We're starting on some of the legislation required for vacating streets down in that area," John said.


 Blackfork Commons Town Square arose from the devastating floods of 2007 and the removal of properties along the Blackfork of the Mohican.
 

 Blackfork Commons is an extension of the existing Shelby Parks System, which currently features five major parks and additional neighborhood parks located throughout the Shelby.

  The project is expected to be completed by spring 2013.
