New Public Works Facility Updates

Project Design Summary: The current Public Works Facility located at 200 4th Street reached capacity in 2012 and needed to be relocated to a larger space to accommodate the operational equipment and materials storage needs for the ongoing growth of the City. In 2018 the City acquired an 11-acre industrial zoned parcel near the southeast corner of Interstate Drive and Wilmer Road. In 2019/2020, the City acquired design services and H Design Group completed a needs assessment.  A programming report was submitted in 2021.  In 2022 conceptual and preliminary design services were initiated and the City entered into a contract with Navigate Building Solutions to provide final design and construction management services.
