[ARCHIVED] Homestead's New City Hall Opens as a Beacon of Pride

The City of Homestead proudly announces the completion of its new City Hall at 100 Civic Court, Homestead, Florida. The 75-foot tall landmark building was designed almost a decade ago, by Rodriguez and Quiroga Architects, and was completed under the City’s current leadership to be a community centerpiece that aligns with the vision to revitalize Downtown Homestead.

While the new City Hall was under construction, elected officials and City staff operated out of a temporary space at Portofino Plaza. Friday, March 4, 2016 is the last day the City will be operating out of Portofino Plaza. Business will officially begin at the new City Hall on Monday, March 7, 2016.

Designed with Homestead’s growing population in mind, the new facility features a 225-seat council chamber to accommodate more residents than before during public meetings. The new City Hall also provides a better operational flow for City business, is constructed to withstand a category 5 hurricane, and will function as an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) during a crisis.

The 83,841 square-foot facility, constructed by Munilla Construction Management, LLC., was awarded LEED® Silver, for implementing strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

Effective Wednesday, March 16 all public meetings that were previously held at the William F. “Bill” Dickinson Community Center, will be held at the new City Hall located at 100 Civic Court. Public meetings include: City Council meetings, Committee of the Whole, Community Redevelopment Agency, Planning & Zoning Board, Special Master Hearing and all city committees.

The following departments are relocating to the new City Hall: Mayor & Council, City Clerk, City Manager, Customer Service, Development Services (Planning and Zoning, Building Safety, Business Services), Finance, General Services, Human Resources, Public Information Office
