Discuss future of City Hall.



At the July Council meeting, staff presented its recommended site for the new City Hall based on selection criteria approved by the previous City Council.  Based on the comments and questions from the meeting it was apparent that the priorities of the new City Council may require a shift in the criteria used to evaluate site selection.  Staff has provided Council with the criteria previously used and a document highlighting significant actions related to the City Hall replacement discussion over the last 15 years. 

At this meeting, staff would like to discuss what the council priorities are for City Hall and have an interactive discussion about what implementing those priorities look like so that staff can provide a recommendation on how to best achieve the priorities of the Council.  

In response to inquiries about City Hall moving into the Main Library, staff did a cursory review of City Hall being located within the Main Library and it is believed that renovations would be possible and would likely fall within the current $6.3 million-dollar budget. 

To help guide a discussion, about where City Hall should be located, staff requests to discuss the following topics:

                     How important is the visibility, accessibility, and architecture of City Hall?


                     Does Council have expectations about City Hall being a standalone facility or a multi-use facility?


                     What are the City Council’s expectations related to when a City Hall should be completed?
