Departments located in City Hall Complex moving as part of remodel project
Beginning July 10, all City meetings are moving to the Public Safety Building (PSB), located at 2555 Cullen Blvd. The meetings are expected to be held at the PSB for the next 5 to 6 months. The meetings will not be live streamed. City Council, Planning & Zoning and other City meetings will be conducted at the Public Safety Building on Cullen Boulevard. The meeting video will play on Pearland TV (Comcast Channel 16 and U-verse Channel 99) and also the City's website the day following the meeting.
Phase II of the project is currently underway and focuses on the renovation of the western half of the City Hall Annex, which will house the Finance Department. Finance and Water Billing and Collections are moving to their new permanent space in the Annex week of July 10 and the City Secretary will move to a temporary location in the Annex (next to Finance) the same week. With this move, the payment window located on the north side of City Hall will be closed. Human Resources will also temporarily work inside of the Annex beginning mid-July.
Engineering and Capital Projects will move to a temporary location at our Hillhouse facility located at 2559 Hillhouse Road in Pearland, Texas. The City Manager's office will be temporarily relocated to the Public Safety Building. The City’s Legal Department will temporarily move to the Municipal Court.
The City Hall Complex Renovation Project is part of the 2015-2019 Capital Improvement Program intended to renovate the City Hall and the City Hall Annex, formerly the Community Center building, collectively referred to as the City Hall Complex. Both City Hall and the building formerly known as the Community Center are approximately thirty years old. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems no longer function optimally and require frequent repair.
Both buildings no longer meet the current building code requirements for the number of occupants and the current floor plans do not provide efficient workflow. The renovation will also upgrade facility security. The construction contract includes the renovation of the entire complex including the replacement of the HVAC system for both buildings. This overhaul will result in a much more efficient modern system that will provide significant operational savings.
