Yes, we have a date. And, yes, we want you there!
A dedication ceremony followed by tours will take place at the new College Station City Hall at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 7.
We hope you’ll attend and get a first look at the three-floor, nearly 80,000-square-foot facility at 1101 Texas Avenue — just behind the existing city hall, which will be razed in the coming months.
This new building will be a source of pride and a center of activity for generations of College Station residents. It has architectural features, finishes, and furnishings that link to College Station’s beginnings as a railroad depot and postal stop located next to the A&M College of Texas.
Among the elements that will make our citizens’ experience easier are more city departments under a single roof, a large city council chamber that can accommodate nearly 200 people, and the 1,200-square-foot Bush 4141 Community Room that can be reserved for a variety of functions — even after business hours.
Some brief remarks and a ribbon-cutting will begin at 4 p.m., and this come-and-go event will run through 7 p.m. and will feature self-guided tours, refreshments, music by the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra’s string quartet, activities for kids, and much more.
Limited parking for the event will be available on-site, but overflow parking will be available within the nearby neighborhoods.
Keep in mind that the existing city hall will be closed for business on Friday, Dec. 10, and Monday, Dec. 13 so our employees can transition to their new office space. If you have business to conduct with the city, make plans accordingly, if possible.
Look for more information to be posted in the coming days at cstx.gov/cityhall. We hope to see you on Dec. 7!
