(COLUMBUS, OHIO – March 29, 2022) – The City of Canal Winchester formally opened the doors to the new City Hall at 45 E. Waterloo Street on Monday, March 28 with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a brief tour of the facility.
The City purchased the former Bob McDorman Automotive Museum in 2020 with the intent of remodeling it in to a centralized location for City services. The new space houses City offices, Council Chambers, and the Community Center. The new city hall is named in honor of the late Robert A. “Bob” McDorman and a plaque in his honor will be displayed in the lobby of the building.
“Bob was more than a successful car dealer. He was also an incredible philanthropist that supported the local schools, churches, hospitals, and even the City,” shared Mayor Mike Ebert. “We are honored to name the building after him.”
Ferguson Construction Company, with regional offices in Sidney, Dayton, Columbus and Indianapolis, was trusted with the interior and exterior reconstruction project that lasted 8 months.
“Ferguson enjoyed having the opportunity to work on this design-build project with the team members from city of Canal” stated Ferguson Project Manager, Joe Mize. “The team at the City are experienced with construction projects and are great at making decisions that ensure the project could meet stated goals. We are proud to partner with the City of Canal Winchester and honored to work a project that will be a landmark for the city for years to come.”
