[ARCHIVED] Council Approves City Hall Architectural Services Contract

At its February 21 meeting, the City Council authorized the City Manager to sign a Professional Services Agreement with ARC Architects in the amount of $53,972.00 to work with the community and City Hall Advisory Committee to define services, space needs and cost estimating of a City Hall.

In late 2016, the City Council appointed a nine-member City Hall Advisory Committee to evaluate a City Hall, including working with the community with assistance of an architect to identify services to be housed in the facility, the space required and a cost estimate for construction. The committee will make a recommendation for the City Council to consider by June.  Final design of the project would not occur until funding is secured.

Thirteen architectural firms interested in the project submitted proposals. A panel consisting of staff and the Chair and Vice Chair of the committee interviewed the top four firms and selected ARC Architects as the preferred firm.  

ARC Architects submitted a proposal that includes a scope of work collaborating with the committee and community on the services, space needs and cost- estimate for the City Hall.

“Contracting with ARC Architects provides expertise in the area of space planning and site layout that we do not have among our staff,” said City Manager Scott Hugill. “This expertise will help identify innovative ways to provide the space necessary for the services the community desires at an efficient cost.”

Check the city’s website, (Government>Other Boards & Commissions>City Hall Advisory Commission) for meeting locations and information.  The committee will be touring city facilities during their early meetings. Most meetings will take place at Interim City Hall unless otherwise noted.
