City Hall In Annapolis

Well my fellow Annapolitans & AE blog readers I am sorry to inform you that 42 days after the first post on the issue of rotted and decaying wood work, seen above from a September 26th picture, over an exterior door at Annapolis City Hall went public apparently nothing has been done to replace or patch it – sorry HAP. For those of you who might be reading about this for the first time the trim work that we are referring to can be seen above the non-public use exterior door on Duke Of Gloucester Street.

In spite of two other blog posts – Sept 26th & Oct 17th, and Tweets to members of the Annapolis Twitter Community, including the City of Annapolis Twitter account, this blighted looking piece of wood continues to hang precariously from the historic brick exterior wall of City Hall. This morning I walked past City Hall  – actually about an hour ago, and the decayed piece of wood work is still as it was on September 26th of this year.

After a few weeks of having published the original post there did not seem to be any movement in either stabilizing the rotted wood or to repair it. It was then that it was suggested to me, by fellow members of the Annapolis Twitter-sphere, that I should re-posted the original article as well as direct the new Tweet to the City Of Annapolis Twitter account along with an updated post. This is what led us to compose our October 17th post a.k.a. Tom and Norm You Are Needed Part II.

Since this piece of damaged wood trim is on the Duke of Gloucester Street side of City Hall I would once again suggest that something is done to at least stabilize the wood before harsher weather arrives on the scene and possibly causes this object to fall on the sidewalk. Besides it is not the best image that we should be projecting to the visitors of our historic city.

As I suggested in my two original blog posts if anyone does happen to see Tom Silva or Norm Abram in town then please send them over to Annapolis City Hall for there is some delicate historical outside trim repair work that needs to be done before it completely falls out of the brick wall. Perhaps the Historic Preservation Commission, which is meeting tonight at City Hall concerning the Grow Annapolis signs at the City Dock, can all grab flashlights and take a look at this issue for themselves – shall I bring my ladder?

Respectfully,

Glenn
