Warwick moves downtown April 14


After years of planning, and a four month delay, Warwick Township will soon be moving into its new digs on Watford’s main street.

The township will be leasing a space on Nauvoo Road which is being built by Watford Investment Group. It’s part of a three building development which began to take shape during the pandemic. The township administration was expected to move in to the new digs by the end of 2021.

Developer Frank Callipari at the time said construction delays were caused by pandemic shortages of materials and delays by contractors.

CAO Amanda Gubbels told council Monday the move in date to the new building the town will lease on Nauvoo Road is now slated for April 14. The public will be able to access services at the new building on April 19, after the Easter long weekend.

Gubbels says most of the building is now ready with only a few finishing touches – such as historic photos of the town which will grace the new office walls – left to complete.

While the building will be open to the public on the 19th, Gubbels says a public open house is being planned for later in April to allow people to come in and tour the new office space.
