Municipal employees and others on Oct. 2 got a look at the emerging Fayetteville City Hall under construction on Stonewall Avenue.
Work on the new Fayetteville City Hall and City Center Park on 10 acres along Stonewall Avenue in downtown Fayetteville continues to progress. Weather permitting, substantial completion is expected in mid-April.
At 34,000 sq. ft., City Hall is situated on 2 acres fronting the roadway, with the 8-acre park space in the rear.
Director of Community Development David Rast led one of the tours, explaining the layout of the new building.
The first floor of the building will include offices such as customer service, the council chambers, welcome center, Main Street, planning and zoning, the fire marshal and the box office for ticket sales.
The second floor will feature offices such as administration, IT, human resources, finance, purchasing, staff break room and training rooms, and a large public-access deck overlooking City Center Park.
Amenities for the 8-acre park space include a concrete stream, children’s splash pad and playground, walk-around pond, picnic pavilion, a grand lawn with performance facilities, dog park, and will also incorporate renovations of the historic Fayette County High School Gymnasium and the old bus barn for commercial use.
City Manager Ray Gibson recently said the City Hall and City Center Park projects are moving along with the revised substantial completion date of mid-April.
