After a nearly year-long renovation, the Blue Springs City Hall is open to the public once again, and residents can take of each of their needs in a single space, rather than hopping between buildings.
The completed construction connects the two buildings on the property. Where before, residents could be sent between buildings depending on their errands, the Codes, Permits and Utility Billing departments are now all within steps of each other.
The city also says the construction brings the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Mayor Carson Ross said he is thrilled to showcase the new-and-improved City Hall.
“This renovation brings our city into the 21st century and gives all our citizens easy access to city services and functions,” he said.
While the space outside is still surrounded by concrete and dirt, residents can look forward to the space being filled with greenery.
City Hall was originally constructed in 1961 and last remodeled in 1989. The renovation project was identified in the 2016-17 to 2020-21 Capital Improvement Program, which outlines the city’s “Priority and Strategic Areas” for long-term maintenance, equipment replacement and capital investment needs, according to the city.
Some department locations still remain outside of the newly renovated City Hall.
