Updated municipal complex map

Someone recently updated the Municipal Complex Map to show where the future city hall is:
And did you realize that they're constructing a new parking garage on the corner of Boston and Washington, across from the old one? (Next to the future fire headquarters.) Hopefully that will give our parking lot some relief!

Here's a link to the pdf, which is good for printing. I'm putting some copies in the cabinet with the maps and tax stuff, which Betty is organizing for us (thanks, Betty!).

If you're trying to find the map on the city's site, the easiest way I've found to locate it is to just do a search for "map" in the search box. Let me know if there's something more intuitive.
