Let's Talk About It: Renovations Coming to Historic Town HallAugust 4, 2023
Windham Mayor Tom Devivo joined us on “Let’s Talk About It” to discuss the plan to upgrade our historic town hall. The Willimantic Town Council unanimously approved a $3 million spending project to renovate the third floor of town hall, which has been dormant for decades due to its condition.
While there is no timeline on the project, we do know three meeting spaces will be created as part of the renovation. The plan is to move the clock tower mechanism down into the third floor for viewing and better maintenance. This project should have no significant impact to tax rates as it will be bonded over 25 years, and payments would not start for a few years when other debts are paid down.
