Department of Public Works and Parks facility

The City has spent several years evaluating, planning, and designing a new facility to house Public Works and Parks Operations. The City first commissioned an assessment of the state of the public works facility in 2016 and found that the facility was rapidly deteriorating. However, the City did not pursue the project at that time. The City commissioned a more thorough assessment in 2022, which began the current planning and design process. For the last several months, City staff has been working with architects from Angus Young to design a new facility that will serve the needs of the City well into the future.

The project is estimated to cost between $15-20 million. The actual cost will not be known until proposals from general contractors are provided later this year. The City intends to include this project in the 2024-25 general obligation borrowing. The City’s financial advisor, Justin Fischer from Baird, will present information relating to the proposed borrowing at the City Council meeting on Dec. 5.
