Recognizing the potential fi nancial opportunity from the state, the City actively pursued this grant funding to return the building to its former architectural glory. Mayor Arrigo, with the City Council’s support, appropriated funds to qualify the city for the state grant. The combination of funds will accelerate the pace at which the building restoration will take place. “We extend our gratitude to the Massachusetts Historical Commission for the support,” said Mayor Arrigo. “These funds will be vital in making important improvements to this building, which preserves our City’s rich history.” The matching allocation of $55,000 will allow for exterior carpentry repairs addressing wood gutters and downspouts, stairways, and restoration of the siding. In addition, a historic paint color analysis will be conducted to restore the original paint color of the building.
