Old City Hall Facade ReplicaOn November 28, 2016 the City Council formed an Ad Hoc Subcommittee comprised of Vice Mayor Thomas Small and Council Member Jim Clarke to oversee a design competition amongst City architects for a Centennial Garden to memorialize the City’s 100th year anniversary and to replace City Hall’s landscaping with drought-tolerant plants (the “Project”). 

An RFP was released that required competing firms to respond in the following two phases:  In the first phase, all the firms were invited to submit conceptual plans for the Project.  In the second phase, those selected as finalists were invited to submit a proposal that outlines the costs to implement their concept.

A nine member Project Review Committee (Committee) was formed to evaluate the four competing conceptual plans that were submitted.  The Committee selected SWA and wHY as finalists and invited them to present their conceptual plans to the City Council and members of the community on August 30, 2017.

On September 25, 2017, the City Council will consider the cost proposals submitted by the two finalists and they will be asked to select a firm to complete the Project.
