Ground Breaking for New City Hall Planned for May 16th

The public is invited to join City Officials and staff as they gather to celebrate the ground breaking for the new City Hall at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

City Hall will be built upon a parcel of property adjacent to the City’s Public Works shop that is also owned by the City of North Bend. The address is 1155 East North Bend Way, North Bend.

Planning for a new City Hall has been in the works for over 25 years as the City of North Bend has explored various options for replacing the existing building. The current building is around 70 years old and suffers from deteriorating conditions, inefficiencies and safety issues.

“We are happy to be breaking ground on this long-awaited project,” said Mayor Ken Hearing. “Our goal is to have a new City Hall capable of meeting current and future space needs and to bring all of our staff together to make it easier for residents to conduct city business and attend City Council meetings.”

The new structure will offer a more customer-service oriented environment with adequate parking, technology-driven meeting facilities, up-to-date security and safety features, and one-stop services for bill paying, applying for permits, or other city business.

The estimated construction cost new City Hall is approximately $6.5 million from a variety of sources, including Real Estate Excise Tax and City savings. The city hall project requires no new taxes or public vote. Construction is expected to begin in June, weather permitting.
