Until further notice the City of Bristol is closed to the public for renovations.
Bristol, incorporated in 1785 and home to over 60,000 residents and access to cable television, is being closed so it can be brought up to standard. The city was officially shuttered Monday morning with the renovations expecting to take a long time, weather permitting.
For many years historic buildings have been closing, home prices declining and roads falling into disrepair. The gritty decor and landscape are not expected to change, but residents may notice upgrades to the layout, city charter and their cable television signal.
A key component of the redesign and refurbishment of the 26.8 square miles area will be to rebuild the Old Post Office, Novack’s, Ferraro’s, Longo Sports World and provide burned pizza from La Monico’s.
City Hall apologizes for any inconvenience.
