The City of Midlothian will break ground on Monday, February 6, for the construction of the new Library and City Hall building on North 8th Street and the new Public Safety building at North 8th Street and Highway 67. Ceremonies for the Public Safety facility will take place at 10 a.m. with ceremonies for the Library/City Hall following at 11 a.m.
Both projects were recommended by a Community Planning Group that began meeting in 2019. The projects were two of four approved by Midlothian voters in a bond election that was held in May 2021.
City Council entered into an agreement with Hoefer Welker for the architectural design of the facilities in September 2021. The design process involved input from the community. At a special called meeting on December 6, 2022, City Council approved contracts with Steele and Freeman for services related to the construction of the facilities. Construction is expected to take approximately 18 months.
Note: groundbreaking was postponed from Feb. 2 due to inclement weather.
