Please note that Eagle Plaza is NOT the Cultural District; it is just one important new element that is helping to define the importance of the area to leather culture. The Friends of Eagle Plaza is forming its own Board of Directors and writing Bylaws, which will determine how the Plaza will be managed and used. This is a great opportunity to get involved in that process! Info about Eagle Plaza can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/friendsofeagleplaza/ or http://www.eagleplaza.org/friendsofeagleplaza .
