The Cottonwood Market has been an important part of Nelson’s identity for many years. Through the design process it has become clear that the new facility can be so much more than a market. The designs use Cross Laminated Timber as the main structural component. Amenities that have been considered include pavilions, BBQ pits available for rental, a large stage, and a sound booth/storage building. Currently the new Plaza has been constructed, and the stage is slated for construction in 2018.
