The city council approved plans to issue two requests for proposals Tuesday night, both seeking plans to relocate city hall services as part of Mayor Gary Christenson's goal of tearing down city hall by the end of his term.
Once vacated, the city will likely begin a separate process seeking proposals for redevelopment of the 200 Pleasant St. parcel.
Administration officials hope that re-purposing the property - adjacent to one of the MBTA's busiest T stations - will stimulate downtown economic development and more effectively re-purpose one of the city's most expensive pieces of real estate.
More details to come as they become available.

What do you think? Wlil tearing down city hall be the economic shot-in-the-arm Pleasant St. needs?
