City Hall Modernization Project
The main floor of City hall is currently undergoing a renovation as part of the City Hall Modernization Project. The project is one of 22 recommendations from the Red Tape Red Carpet Task Force report, and was approved by City Council in September 2019. In keeping with the City’s focus on customer experience, this project will create a more open, customer-facing area on the first floor of City Hall.
Construction on the main floor of City Hall is expected to finish in early 2023.
