Construction to complete seismic upgrades continues at Municipal Hall. This project will help ensure that District staff are able to continue to serve residents after a seismic event. When complete, the structural upgrades will bring Municipal Hall up to Building Code standards and the envelope and systems upgrades will provide energy efficiencies that meet the District’s climate goals reducing the building's annual Green House Gas emissions by 90%+.
