Wrap-Up of the Let’s Talk Meeting – City Hall Project
In case you missed the special meeting held on November 6th, here are some informational highlights
from the meeting.
Since 2014, the City of Normandy Park has been working to establish a new City Hall and Police Station. And a new opportunity has emerged that can meet our needs in an existing building on First Avenue. For context, the building we are looking at is approximately 28,000 square feet and is part of Towne Center. Said building is in the northwest corner of the shopping center and used to serve the community as our grocery store.
If the building is purchased, the City will immediately renovate 16,000 square feet to serve as a City Hall, Police Station, Town Hall, and community gathering place. The remaining 12,000 square feet are currently leased, and the City will honor that agreement.
Here is the proposed site plan (click on the image to zoom in):
Voter Approved Bond
Funding for this project will be dependent on a voter-approved bond. In looking at the project costs and the available cash that the City has in reserves, we need a $7.5 million bond. With this funding, we can purchase the building, make the necessary improvements, and have funding to help us repurpose our current City Hall building.
In 2022, residents could vote on a $15 million bond to help build a new Civic Center. Voters rejected this bond, and the main reason behind this voter decision was that the project was too expensive. We are happy to present an option that has reduced the bond request by 50%. To help you understand how the bond would impact your household, here is a chart showing the costs of the proposed bond. And remember, use your assessed value and not the market value. If you want help determining your value, visit the King County Assessor’s website.
