Ramadi Welcomes New And Symbolic Building
Ramadi has came a long way, from its past of some of the fiercest battles and combat zone action. Recently there was a new building that was erected, and it will serve a number of functional purposes, as well as helping to be a symbol of the positive advances that are happening in real time inside of Ramadi.
The new building is called the 17th street municipal building, and it was dedicated on August 24th. It is known as the municipal building, also as the ?Red Building,? because of its distinctive red color from the building materials used to build it.
The building was formerly a student dorm for a local Ramadi education program, but now following its successful remodeling it will serve as a beacon in many ways of everything good that is happening in Ramadi.
The building itself was quite badly damaged in the early part of the war, and it was abandoned until recently. It has been remodeled using mostly Iraqi Workmen, selected, vetted and cleared by the Coalition Servicemembers to work on the new building.
Characterized until recently as ?a big frame of a building with a huge hole in the middle,? the Red building has since emerged as a new beacon of how well things can go when the members of the local government work together hand in hand with the coalition.
No one wants the members of the coalition troops that are stationed in Iraq to remain there a single minute longer than they have to. But, now the two sides, the Iraqi Government and the leaders of the Coalition are able to work toward setting up a reasonable withdrawal schedule by working together.
