It's lighter, quicker, cheaper — and it's fun.

The public is invited to christen the new Sugarmont Plaza on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at 2227 S. Highland Drive.

"Sugarmont Plaza is a new urban gathering spot that features a colorful plaza surface, murals, tables, chairs and umbrellas available to the public. Food truck rallies, music events, free movie screenings and casual gatherings are all planned for the space in the coming months," according to a statement from the Redevelopment Agency (RDA).

Friday's family event will feature music and food, as well as tours of the project.

The project was spearheaded by Mark Morris of Friends of the Sugar House Streetcar, and Amy Barry, of the Sugar House Community Council. It was underwritten by a $12,580 grant from the RDA.

"Sugarmont Plaza activates a part of Sugar House currently undergoing significant change," Morris said. "We hope many events will be held here this summer, encouraging community members to consider how valuable public space is to them."
