Rutland residents weighing in on the future of the Center Street Alley expressed interest in commercial use, grass and trees and, above all, flexibility at the city’s most hidden park.

What the brick-faced and multi-tiered venue might look like in the future won’t be known until landscape architects complete conceptual designs in January.
