The Town of Corte Madera is in the beginning stages of creating a more resilient, functional, and inviting Town Hall that will be a community asset for the Town’s next 100 years. The project is intended to be a long-term solution to ongoing challenges at the existing Town Hall facility, including issues related to seismic stability, compliance with current building codes (including ADA accessibility), and inadequate capacity for community and public meetings, permitting, and office functions.
The Town has conducted several meetings and workshops over the last year where the public has been invited to participate in the project and fiscal planning for the Town Hall project. Additional neighborhood and community-wide outreach regarding the project goals, site planning, design, and potential neighborhood impacts will be conducted through the Planning Commission project review process. Materials from previous meetings can be accessed below, and will be updated as the project application develops.
In May 2019, Community Workshops were conducted to solicit input from the community on site planning and design priorities that would help shape the Town Hall Project. Two Community Workshops were conducted May 11, 2019 and May 13, 2019.
In early 2019, a “Working Group” was developed involving stakeholders, local architects, and two members of Town Council to conduct a broad community discussion to think more holistically about needs, location, master planning, and the long-term vision of Town Hall. The outcome of these meetings led to the development of multiple rough concept design options which were presented and discussed at two public “open-house” events held at the Corte Madera Community Center. The Working Group met on February 28, 2019, March 14, 2019, and March 29, 2019.
