On March 17, Millcreek Mayor Jeff Silvestrini, Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, and Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera united at the new Millcreek City Hall to break ground, a traditional ceremony to signal the first day of construction.
The new city hall will be located at 1330 E. Chambers Ave. (3205 South) near the Millcreek common skate loop. The groundbreaking showed designs included renderings of the public market cafe, lobby interior, and a view of the expected outdoors skate loop located on the ground floor. The center of the commons will also have places for local restaurants and rotating vendors from farmers markets.
The new city hall is intended to be an inviting place for people to spend time together.
The top floor will have a community room capable of hosting 180 patrons for a sit down banquet and more patrons in the event of a conference. The same space will be available for rent for private events.
On the third floor of the new city hall will be the United Police Department Precinct of Millcreek. The present precinct is located at 3900 South.
The designs feature open spaces build with light wood and spots of greenery incorporated for an outdoors effect. The windows are made large for views outdoors and for the benefit of natural light.
The former thrift store space leased as the current city hall has been in service since 2016; however, the contract is set to finish in June 2023, and Millcreek has become a large city in need of its own official city hall since six years ago.
