Posted: March 28, 2017
BELLEVILLE – The City of Belleville is pleased to host an official reopening ceremony for the newly renovated front foyer of City Hall on Thursday, March 30th at 9:00 a.m. The construction work, which began in October, is now complete and the result is a beautiful transformation which has not only made the entryway compliant with accessibility requirements, but it has struck an esthetic balance which compliments the historical features of the building while aligning with the convenience of modern design.
“The result of this renovation is truly amazing,” said Mayor Taso Christopher. “Residents and visitors now enter City Hall and are greeted with facilities which are welcoming and accessible to all. The ease of modern technology has been applied without compromising the historical integrity of the building.”
The elevator now extends from the lobby to the fourth floor and height adjustable counter tops are installed in Finance and Corporate Service areas on the first floor. The foyer features displays of historical artifacts and video information for residents and tourists alike.
Mayor Christopher and Council have invited special guests, Mr. Gerry Boyce (historian) and Mr. William White (architect) to be a part of Thursday’s ceremony.
The public is encouraged to visit City Hall at their convenience to see this beautiful new gateway.
