Plans are underway for the City of Royal Oak to begin moving into our new City Hall on August 11.
Here are five quick facts about the design of the new City Hall.
1. Better Navigation
All service counters in the new facility will be centrally located in a customer-friendly area on the first floor making it much easier for visitors to navigate.
2. Larger (and More) Meeting Spaces
The city commission chambers in the new City Hall will be located on the first level, have more seating capacity and offer a better overflow option for those meetings that draw shoulder-to-shoulder participation. The overflow area will allow site lines into the chamber and will also have video screens. The new plan also offers more rooms for staff and committee meetings.
3. Energy Efficient
The design approach for the new building targets energy efficiency standards that will save money and help protect the planet.
The new facility prioritizes the accessibility experience making circulation easier for those using wheelchairs or strollers in the building.
5. Modern Technology
Technology will give the new City Hall a modern twist. Visitors will be able to fill out online applications at conveniently located user-friendly kiosks.
