City Hall renovations kicked off with a ceremony Thursday

City and project leaders held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the planned City Hall renovations Thursday. Following the ceremony, which saw city leaders don hard hats and dig with shovels, Mayor Jeff Caggiano gathered architectural renderings for the new city hall and spoke of the history and importance of the project. He was joined by representatives from “D’Amato and Downs A Joint Venture” and QA+M Architecture and Studio Q. Ray Rogozinski, director of public works and lead project manager, thanked all those who supported and helped plan the renovation project, including city staff and construction leaders. He said that the new city hall will better serve residents. Tony D’Amato, of D’Amato Construction, recalled his former service on the city council during which, he said, he engaged in early discussions about what to do with City Hall. Former City Councilor David Mills, who attended the groundbreaking, had suggested Memorial Boulevard, where D’Amato is currently working on renovating the arts magnet school.
