The Spokane Valley City Hall at 10210 E. Sprague Avenue opened in September 2017, celebrating with an open house for the community in mid-October. Prior to the construction of the City Hall, the city leased a portion of the Redwood Plaza to house its city offices and employees.
Thanks to everyone in the community who assisted with the City Hall open house. If you missed the event, here are some fun photos.
The 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 employees who assist them.
Located in the former University City Shopping Center, long considered by locals to be the heart of Spokane Valley, the City Hall is designed to be the centerpiece of a civic center that builds community pride and contributes to a unique city identity. It is hoped that the City Hall will 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 enough seating capacity to welcome and encourage community members' interest and involvement in city government.
Perhaps one of the most significant accomplishments is that the City Hall was built without raising city taxes.
