Your new City Hall is much more than a utilitarian building housing city government and services. It is a welcoming place where stronger connections are built between citizens and the elected officials and staff members who serve them. Located in the former University City Shopping Center, long considered by locals to be the heart of the community, the new City Hall is designed to form the centerpiece of a civic center that contributes to a unique city identity and builds community pride. It is hoped that the new City Hall will also serve as a catalyst for economic development and new private investment in the area.
Designed for energy efficiency as well as functionality, the building's internal layout emphasizes a commitment to serving the citizens of Spokane Valley, with the most frequently accessed services conveniently located on the first floor. Council Chambers are located just inside the main entry, with increased seating capacity to welcome more community members' interest and involvement in their city government.
Perhaps one of the most significant accomplishments is that it was built without raising city taxes.
