From Mayor Walsh’s Press Office, August 1, 2014: The Dudley Sq. Municipal Center has an official new name.
BOSTON – Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced that the Ferdinand Building will be renamed the Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building. Bolling was a staunch supporter of equal access to jobs and housing as a City Councilor and fought to bring economic development and investment to Roxbury. The naming will be official following a vote by the Public Facilities Commission, which may take place as early as August 6.
“Councilor Bolling never stopped fighting for Boston’s neighborhoods, especially Roxbury, holding that community together at a time of great division,” said Mayor Walsh. “A remarkable civic leader, he dreamed big for diversity and for narrowing Boston’s economic and racial divides, and working together to achieve a common goal. I’m proud to honor his legacy through this centerpiece of the City of Boston’s Dudley Square revitalization efforts.” Continue reading
