Ocala's City Hall



Ocala's "powers-that-be" have chosen to spruce up the old downtown area. One of their project was to refinish and refurbish City Hall. The best part of that, in my opinion, was the construction of a European style plaza on the western side of the building (2nd photo).

Welcome back, Lowell!

City Hall looks much more interesting with the plaza. I hope it looks empty just because you caught it before or after business hours.

Oh that is very, very nice!

The powers-that-be did a good job.

I like the city hall, but the 'plaza' looks like it was ready for many people than seem to be wandering through (which seems to have been just you!)

Looks like it was built in the 70's.
It's probably older, right.

Your photo is making me wish I had spent the winter in Florida.

It's just so South.

It's a very welcoming spot. This building has a southern look to it. Must be all those pillars.

Judy said...

Nice, very southern mansion-ish.
We missed you!

Nice-looking place. A city hall needs to look like the citizens take pride in their community.
