— Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer Bob Harlan has been honored with the re-dedication of a new plaza in his name.

The newly redesigned Robert E. Harlan Plaza, in front of Lambeau Field, honors the former Packers president and CEO. Harlan's 37-year career with the organization included a .500 or better season for 13 straight years from 1992 to 2004.

As Packers chairman emeritus, Harlan said he is honored his name would forever be embossed outside the stadium.

Press-Gazette Media (http://gbpg.net/1jfe1qb ) reports the larger, reconfigured Harlan Plaza is now at street level and farther west than its original location. Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy says the project required the removal of 2,200 truckloads of dirt.

City officials, construction workers and fans attended the dedication ceremony Wednesday.
