HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Groundbreaking for the new Huntsville City Hall began on Monday with Mayor Tommy Battle giving remarks along with other Huntsville-Madison County officials.

The municipal complex will be a seven-story, $90 million project that will sit across the street from the current city hall on Fountain Circle. Mayor Battle said it is important that the new building will allow the city to work more efficiently.

“The new municipal building will be 2 ½ times larger than our present City Hall,” Mayor Battle said at the event. “When it opens in about two years, we will finally be able to bring departments back together under one roof.  It will allow us to work more efficiently, make offices more convenient for residents to access and will be a far better use of taxpayer dollars.”

Once the new building is completed, the current building will be demolished. Mayor Battle has suggested to the City Council that the location of the old city hall become part of Big Spring Park.

“With the growth we’re experiencing downtown, we need more places to play,” Mayor Battle said. “This property will allow us to expand Big Spring Park and provide more public space for everyone to enjoy.”
