AkGlobe News/10254363

~ The City and Borough of Juneau is inviting the public to learn more about the options for the future of Juneau's City Hall at an Open House and Q&A session on Wednesday, September 13. From 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., attendees can start in the Assembly Chambers to speak with staff and ask questions, then join a tour of the current City Hall—including CBJ's rented office spaces nearby—to find out more about the condition of the building and the estimated $14 million in repairs needed.

At 5:15 p.m., current City Manager Rorie Watt and Engineering & Public Works Director/incoming City Manager Katie Koester will lead a brief presentation and Q&A session covering topics such as a cost-benefit analysis of current and proposed city hall scenarios, what other sites were considered, what has changed since the last election, and how consolidation and relocation to a purpose-built and energy-efficient facility would save money without increasing property taxes.

Koester and Watt will be available to answer questions one-on-one before and after the presentation. Building tours will also be offered throughout the evening. Additionally, attendees can stop by 450 Whittier Street to see the proposed new city hall site and find out more about the site selection process and what would be included in a new building.

For those interested in learning more about Juneau's City Hall options, this Open House is an opportunity to ask questions directly from staff members involved in making decisions for Juneau's future. For more information, visit CBJ's New City Hall webpage.
