New Municipal Building costs money

-A A +A
By Patricia Max

The county’s presentation, “New Municipal Building Space Program Update” at the Feb. 2 county council meeting did not generate the kinds of questions from the council that showed it was concerned about cost issues. There were questions on the size of the council chambers and conference rooms. However, there were no questions about why the space requirements were based upon the GSA figure of 300 square feet per person rather than 200 or 250. The cost of the building is a function of the size of the building, currently estimated at 50,425 square feet. There is a “placeholder” cost of $15 million dollars in the current budget. Is this how much the county will spend total? Before the council requests space requirements from the county, the council must say how much this building will cost. The person making the presentation commented about building costs being lower now than they have been. Are we going to have another huge monstrosity rushed through rather than taking the time to look at how much we are willing to spend and then designing for that?
