A new city hall coming?

Huntsville's nine-story City Hall, built in the 1960s, is beginning to show its age. Last month, the area surrounding City Hall was fenced off for fears that pieces of the marble facade on the building might fall off. City councilman Glenn Watson suggested in today's Huntsville Times that it might be cheaper to build a completely new complex. He suggested two sites: the large gravel parking lot on Clinton Avenue across from the Post Office and at the new Constellation development. The old city hall could be bought and renovated by a private developer to be converted into condos or offices, or it could be demolished to make way for more greenspace. The fate of City Hall will be discussed at this Thursday's City Council work session.
