New City Hall
Why a new city hall?
Since shortly after incorporation in 2016, Millcreek has been leasing space for our City Hall. The current lease on our space in a converted thrift store at 3330 South 1300 East is set to expire in June of 2023 (after a total of 7 years) and we understand that the landlord desires to redevelop this property. This means that we need to begin planning for a permanent location.
For some time, the City Council and staff have been exploring ideas about relocating City Hall. We have had a third-party consultant survey Millcreek residents and we have had an open poll advertised in the City’s paper and electronic newsletters on this issue. We have hired an architectural firm to advise us on the City’s future space needs and we have been thinking of incorporating our UPD Precinct headquarters into the project. With all this in mind, we are beginning to formulate conclusions that a new City Hall should be owned by the city, should be located next to open space, should be useful to the Millcreek Community, and should be located in the new Millcreek Common project area. What is the basis for all of this, why now, and can we afford it?
