About the City Hall Renovations


The renovations accomplished three main objectives: increased public safety, improved ADA accessibility, and clearer wayfinding for visitors. The central front entrance increases security for everyone in the building. Every decision of the renovations was made with ADA accessibility and building code in mind, from a ramp in the new Council Chambers/Courtroom, to wider hallways throughout the building, to updated restrooms. The new parking garage for police, sheriff, and courts allows for secured prisoner and weapon transport.
