After years of planning and construction, the new Coral Spring City Hall is finally completed, and this Saturday residents are invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a free outdoor concert.
At a cost of $38 million, the new five-story building with a four-story parking garage was first proposed back in 2011 by former Mayor Roy Gold, then voted forward in 2014. The former city hall was decades old, had mold problems and residents couldn’t fit into the packed commission chambers during meetings. (See floor plans below).
The band Steeltown Religion begins at 6 p.m., then there will be a State of the City celebration including a video, brief comments from the city manager and mayor and then music will be provided by the Zac Brown Tribute Band, “20 RIDE”. Food trucks will be on site along with Funky Buddha craft beer & wine which will be available for $5. Limited seating will be available, so bring your blankets and chairs. The city asks that you please refrain from bringing any outside food and alcohol to the event. Parking will be available at the City Hall Parking Garage and tours of City Hall will also be available as well.
The event is on Saturday February 17, 2018 with the ribbon cutting beginning at 5 p.m. at the new Coral Springs City Hall located at 9500 W. Sample Road, just west of University Drive.
