New Cottonwood Heights city hall now open

October 9, 2016 by  

Cottonwood Heights has a new city hall, and this was celebrated with an opening ceremony on September 29.

Residents, dignitaries, and city officials joined to enjoy the ribbon-cutting celebration and then toured the building, which was open to everyone. Governor Gary Herbert joined Kelvyn Cullimore, the Cottonwood Heights mayor, for the event.

The new city hall is located on East Bengal Boulevard, and comprises 35,000 square feet. Construction, which came with a $16.5m price tag, took more than 2½ years. GSBS Architects designed the building, with Layton Construction handling the actual construction activities.

The new city hall sits on 4.77 acres of land, and features six meeting rooms, 20 offices, and a large room that serves as a multipurpose chamber. The police department is housed in a separate wing from the city administration. City staff members moved into their new offices recently.

Governor Gary Herbert has strong connections to the city. In 2005, when he was lieutenant governor, he signed Cottonwood Heights’ articles of incorporation. Later that year, he administered the oaths of office to the first city council members, as well as presiding over the first inaugural ceremony.

Events like these can be enhanced when organizers work with banner printing companies. These printers can create festive banners that add a welcome touch of fun to any event, and are particularly suited for display outdoors.
