Construction on City Hall Facade and Lawn Continues
A project to enhance the façade of the historic Kirkwood City Hall on Kirkwood Road will begin the week of July 14 and continue through at least October. PLEASE NOTE: During Phase One of construction, the front lawn of City Hall will be unavailable for use by anyone attending Thursday night concerts at Station Plaza.
The scope of the project will involve the removal and replacement of the walkways and paved areas between City Hall and Kirkwood Road on the east side and between City Hall and the parking lot on the west side, as well as landscaping on both sides.
This project will be segmented into two major phases. Phase One involves the east, or Kirkwood Road side, of City Hall, while Phase Two will take place on the west, or parking lot, side of City Hall. During construction, parking will be slightly more limited, although City staff will park elsewhere to accommodate residents and visitors.
Phase One begins the week of July 14, when temporary fencing is installed along the east perimeter of the building and grounds, facing Kirkwood Road. The fencing will make the sidewalk in front of City Hall, along Kirkwood Road, inaccessible. Pedestrians should plan to use the sidewalk on the other side of Kirkwood Road. Demolition of paved areas will follow. The temporary fencing will remain in place until the completion of Phase One. Phase One is estimated to be completed in September, barring any unforeseen complications or bad weather.
Phase Two of the project will begin immediately after the completion of Phase One. Phase Two will involve construction on the west side of City Hall.
Pedestrian-Bicycle Master Plan Process Continues
All concerts start at 7:00 p.m., in the Lions' Amphitheater in Kirkwood Park, 111 S. Geyer Road, on the dates listed:
