Recap from the City Hall "Thank You" Event

This past Tuesday, we held a "thank you" event to acknowledge and thank all of those who helped us create and get settled into our new City Hall space.  Thanks to Andrew Rosenthal and GRA+D architecture and design, Palmetto Construction, Continental Development, the Bexley Community Improvement Corporation, Dupler Office, Columbus Sign and Designpath, MKSK, E.P. Ferris, Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter, Kayne Law Group, Vorys, and the Bexley Community Foundation for the phenomenal support and expertise throughout this process.  And a special huge "thank you" to the Bexley City employees who sorted through 60 years of accumulation at our former City Hall, who prepped the former Bexley Monk space for our contractors, and who endured a complex and drawn out relocation process - you all are simply the best and we could not have done this without you!  At our event we also dedicated and named the David H. Madison Community Conference Room - the "Madison Room" - right in the same corner of space that was formerly occupied by the "Madison Room" at the Bexley Monk.  Thank you Bexley!
