The grass isn’t the only thing making an appearance this spring — the new Second Street entrance to city hall has finally been unveiled after being covered in a tarp all winter.
The new entrance is designed to make the building wheelchair accessible, while also providing a gathering space along the sidewalk. The large windows are designed to mimic the doors from when the building was a firehall.
Work began last August and also included the replacement of a water main under Second Street East.
The interior renovations are expected to be finished in the coming weeks and a grand-opening is being planned for mid-April, said acting-Mayor Linda Nixon at Tuesday’s council meeting.
I have asked city hall for the cost of the project and am awaiting a response.
I like the bay windows and the wider sidewalk. I don’t like the concrete bannisters leading up the stairway. They’re large, ugly and out of place. Hopefully they’ll feel better when the trees are planted.
What do you think?
