Burnsville City Hall and the adjoining Police Department (100 Civic Center Parkway) were built in 1988. The multi-purpose building has served the City for nearly 30 without significant renovation. In 2014, the City contracted Wold Architects and Engineers to conduct an independent “space needs” study for this and other City buildings. This study outlined short- mid- and long-term plans that will help accommodate the City’s current and future space needs.

What Renovations are Needed?
The City is proposing a phased plan to deal with needed renovations outlined in the space needs study. The first phase of proposed renovations (2016-2018) will improve public safety, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility, operational efficiency and visitor convenience in City Hall and the Police Department. It will also include a long-term master plan for Fire Station No. 1 and conceptual plans for the City's former maintenance facility.
