Boston Globe on CPA funding across the state including Gloucester art, City Hall, Central Grammar, Cape Ann Museum. Brenda Buote splays the numbers and approaches.
Gloucester continues to be a positive example in today’s paper. Great article.

Today, on a beautiful summer’s morning, members of the City Hall Restoration Phase II Building Committee took to the staging to review the ongoing restoration.
We were impressed by what has been achieved recently.
The restored cornice work in the final color but waiting for the brickwork to be painted in the same color
Not many people can say that they have seen the bell from this angle and so close up
I love the "pixelated" look that the mesh gives the photo.
Approaching noon on July 30 2012
St Ann’s was shining brightly as was the repaired ventilator.
Love the reflections offered by the new copper-clad ventilator.
Another "pixelated" view
The big tower says to the smaller tower – I’m so pleased that you are receiving the good care that I received a few years ago.
Thank you, citizens of Gloucester.
Long may we look over you.
Couldn’t resist a self portrait!
Yet another shiny reflection
Can you post these photos that were recently taken of the restoration project of City Hall? As your site is so popular this is the best way to keep everybody informed as to the progress of the project.
The project has started in earnest but as the work being done is going on behind the green shrouding it’s not easy to detect the progress. These photos were taken of the small towers (ventilator towers) last week.
Craig Herrmann will be posting these photos on our website www.restoreourtower.com and we will be sending you more as we get them.
And I’d also like to invite people who are also taking photos to send them to me so that we can post them on the website as well as keeping a record of this project for posterity’s sake.
Looking at the top section they did a fantastic job. They seem to be working in sections.
That’s a long way to fall buddy. This is an instance where union pay still wouldn’t be enough to do this type of job.
