New Boerne City Hall Project

Update:  The Boerne City Council approved the issuance of Tax Notes to finance the new City Hall project.  With assistance from the city's Bond Counsel, bids were accepted and Frost Bank pledged to provide the city with $22 million at a very favorable interest rate of 1.79%.  This will cover the cost of the city hall project, which is at 60% design, and provides funds for mobility projects associated with commercial development near South Main Street and Christus Parkway.

City Hall update on March 14, 2017 - Randall Scott Architects presented updated schematic designs for the new City Hall  - these are still preliminary and subject to change based on staff and City Council input.  See presentation here.  This is a very large file and may take several seconds to download to your device.

Background:  City Council approved the negotiation of an architectural and engineering services contract for the design of the new Boerne City Hall at the   September 13, 2016 regularly scheduled City Council meeting.

The City will be using the Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) process for the new City Hall project.  The City Council approved an agreement with Lee Lewis Construction at the February 14, 2017 meeting.
