Trudy Cole, who designed the mural on the Community Development Building for a July 4 celebration, says, “It hurts my heart a little bit. ... I am accepting the fate of the mural but would so welcome the opportunity to design and implement a new one.” The mural will be torn down as part of the construction of the new city hall.
