Public examines municipal building site options

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Questions ranging from why the new municipal building can’t look like the old one to which option will cost taxpayers more were asked by residents attending the second presentation on plan options in Council Chambers Thursday.

Community Development Director Rick Bohn discussed the present Municipal Building site first. He had copies of an ad hoc report and a draft municipal site document planfrom last year, which he said directly resulted in what was being presented.

The recommendations suggested the Municipal Building be re-used and if it couldn’t be re-used then it should be rebuilt on the same site. Recommendations also suggested the new building be reminiscent of the former building, Bohn said, and also that the county explore the possibility of having the private sector build the new Municipal Building on a private site with other commercial development.

Bohn briefed the audience on two building options for the Ashley Pond site and one for a public-private partnership with revenue-generating potential for the 15th and Trinity Drive site.
