Proposition A provides funding that allows City Council to rebuild at the current location or acquire a new location for an improved Municipal Building. City leaders commissioned various studies to determine the most practical plan for renovating the existing City Hall.
After evaluating the studies, the City Council voted unanimously in March of 2022 to authorize the purchase of the Faith Bible Church on Bee Cave Road for the development of a new two-story municipal complex with approximately 17,000 total sq ft of space. The property is located at 4010 Bee Cave Road and sits on about three acres of flat land, right across from Eanes Elementary School. The council evaluated numerous other sites for the future City Hall and believes this location is the best fit for the needs of the city.
The existing West Lake Hills complex located at 911 Westlake Drive is comprised of two buildings that were originally built in 1983 with a two-story addition constructed in 2009. Both structures were developed to comply with the residential code at the time, and no longer comply with current building codes.
