Mayor Madden Announces Dedication of Riverfront Park to William D. Chamberlain



Mayor Maddenannounced the City of Troy will officially dedicate Riverfront Park to the memory of William D. Chamberlain, the City’s longtime Director of Operations. The park and adjacent portion of Front Street will be dedicated as “William D. Chamberlain Riverfront Park” and “Chamberlain Way” in recognition of Mr. Chamberlain’s life and three decade career with the City of Troy.
 
Mayor Patrick Madden said, “The dedication of Riverfront Park to Bill Chamberlain is a permanent and meaningful recognition of his extraordinary contributions to our great city. Bill was a tremendous figure in the community who worked tirelessly for our residents, families, neighborhoods and businesses, and this memorial will ensure his legacy of service and commitment are never forgotten. I applaud the numerous volunteers who contributed to this important effort and look forward to sharing this special day with the Chamberlain family this spring.”
 
Nancy Chamberlain, Bill’s wife of 31 years said, “Both I and our sons, Ryan and Patrick, are deeply honored by this recognition. We are extremely touched by this dedication especially because it came to fruition by the efforts and work of his colleagues that Bill appreciated and respected so very much.”
 
Plans for a permanent memorial began in 2017 when a local volunteer committee – consisting of friends, City employees and former coworkers – began discussions on how to honor and pay respect to the memory of Bill Chamberlain. In coordination with the City administration and the Chamberlain family, the committee proposed and obtained approval for the dedication of the park and street. The memorial committee raised nearly $4,000 from local donors to cover costs associated with the dedication of the park, including the design & production of memorial signs from Troy-based business Sign Studio, Inc.
 
A special dedication ceremony has been scheduled for 12:00pm, Saturday, April 21, at Riverfront Park, with a reception at Ryan’s Wake, located at 403 River Street, to be held immediately following the event.
