Also in this project to extend and reform, enlargement over reform, the answer seems essential to the use requested, which is why we think that issues like excessive respect for the parcel or overvalued taking place in the environment, could force excess growth, organization and functioning of the New Town Hall. We would like the new building to accommodate without efforts irregular funds added to the Old Town Hall.
