The Project includes the demolition of the existing City Hall and Volunteer Hall, on a City of Monmouth-owned site at 151 Main St. West in downtown Monmouth on an approximately 1.1 acre site. The new 15,200-SF building is designed to replace the current two-story building where city services of Finance, Building, Community Development, and Administration departments are provided. The program of the building includes the two basic components of the two-story city hall building connected to the one-story municipal court/city council chamber. A public plaza is envisioned at the front of the new building. Monmouth expects Project phases to include the final design phase to complete construction documents for bid; construction bid (underway now through November-December 2021); moving 13 employees to temporary work locations at other city offices; demolition of City Hall and Volunteer Hall; and permitting and construction of the new City Hall on the site, through building occupancy. Building construction is expected to incorporate cross-laminated timber structural elements and includes site work to fill and grade the existing site and tie in to existing utilities and city streets.
