Our City Hall

425 N. El Dorado Street

Our City Hall’s majestic architecture and noble inscriptions make the exterior an iconic part of our downtown landscape. After nearly a hundred years of continual use, the building is in a state of disrepair, requiring extensive, and expensive, mitigation efforts. 


We must plan for our future needs and, at the same time, determine the best use for the current City Hall. The Mayor and Council recognize the historical significance of the building and the deep sentiment held by many residents about the building.


The Council would like to hear from people who have thoughts, ideas, or recommendations. Costs will continue to be a major factor in the final decision, but the City is open to collaborative and creative solutions.
