The City of Hamilton today [Sept 19] announced the start of a competition inviting members of the public to provide feedback and suggestions on the redesign of the front of City Hall.
Making the announcement was City Councillor, Mr. Troy Symonds, who stated, “ As people may recall earlier this year, the fountains that had graced the front of City Hall for more than three decades were removed for a number of reasons. We are now ready to move forward with a new look and feel for this space which is currently covered with grass.”
Councillor Symonds continued, “As we prepare to redesign the front of City Hall, we are seeking input from members of our community, including students.
“There are two ways for ideas to be submitted. The first is through an online survey, which will take no more than about five minutes to complete. The second option is by submitting drawings of what the space could look like.
“Both options can be found on the City of Hamilton’s website. The form can be downloaded from www.cityhall.bm and submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or brought to the City of Hamilton Administration Offices on the ground floor of City Hall.
“Likewise, anyone who may not have internet access can come into City Hall and get a blank form to complete. The competition ends on Friday, October 19 at 5:00pm.”
Councillor Symonds concluded, “I see this as an exciting opportunity to hear from everyone who are interested in the aesthetics and utility of the front of City Hall. I look forward to receiving the public’s comments.
“It is my intention to display all of the ideas we receive in the foyer of City Hall. Winning participant(s) could see their name adorn a feature of their design when City Hall unveils its new look. I encourage everyone, from students to professionals, to share their thoughts, concepts and drawings.”
