Hiawatha Campus Expansion Project
The Hiawatha Campus expansion will allow the City to relocate and consolidate the Public Works Water Distribution Maintenance operation. The consolidation will make operations more efficient and improve service.
The City Council approved acquisition of the Roof Depot properties in the East Phillips neighborhood Feb. 22, 2016. The Council also directed staff to redevelop the site following the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold level of quality.
On June 19, 2015, the Council authorized City staff to negotiate with the owner of the Roof Depot site for the acquisition of property to allow for the campus expansion. The Council also directed staff to work with community members to identify redevelopment or leasing scenarios for the portion of the property not required for municipal operations.
