"This is a monumental project that will construct a civic centerpiece for our community for generations to come," said R.J. Suokko, director of public works for the Town of Corte Madera.

Once completed, the project is intended to create a more resilient, functional and inviting community asset that will serve the Town of Corte Madera for the next 50 to 100 years.
