The PVE Foundation has been encouraged by the growing number of residents who have become a part of our mission by submitting generous donations and creative project ideas. Multiple residents have approached the Foundation regarding the deferred maintenance and safety concerns of the City Hall complex and have provided various suggestions for this location.
Through generous donations and productive conversations, a project scope has been defined. This scope has been reviewed by the PVE Foundation Leadership team and discussed with the City Staff for feasibility.
We are pleased to announce that the PVE Foundation has approved a Grant to perform an analysis of our current City Hall and surrounding area as a first step in determining the needs for improvements, repairs and upgrades to the complex.
A letter was provided to the Mayor, City Council and City Manager on 7/13/21. It was also read during public comments at the 7/13/21 City Council Meeting.
Once this study is completed, we will be requesting that the City Council have an open Community meeting to receive the results and determine next steps.
