City staff updated the City Council Monday on design plans for the new City Hall and Municipal Campus, following two rounds of public input opportunities and updated space planning. Voters approved funding for the new City Hall in both the 2021 and 2023 Bond Programs.
Interior floor plans and exterior renderings of the proposed City Hall building were unveiled, aligning with the public’s request for a “stepped” building form and prominent Council Chamber, as well as a desire for glass, stone and sustainability features. Staff reported that these revisions have resulted in a 4,000-square-foot increase in the original planned building area and a $6 million project cost increase from the January 2023 conceptual estimate, which will be covered by FY 22 General Fund year-end savings, insurance proceeds and a tenant improvement allowance.
Design development is scheduled to continue through the spring, with demolition of the existing City Hall scheduled for May.
