Provo begins demolition to build new city center!
Construction on the new Provo city hall officially began Monday at 10 a.m. with demolition of the old Rocky Mountain Drive-in at 50 S. 500 West.Today is a historic day for Provo City as we see the first visible signs of construction on our new Provo City Center! This day would not be possible were it not for our citizens seeing this need and trusting us.
Our goal for the new public safety building is focused on safety and security for our employees and guests, a facility that allows us to be more efficient in our work and large enough to handle future growth.
The Provo City Center will be the "Citizen’s City Center", and I want each citizen to be able to track the construction progress, know their money is being wisely spent and feel confident we are keeping the promises we made to them. With that goal in mind, we are releasing our new construction website at ProvoCityCenter.org, complete with videos, renderings, a feedback form and a timeline!
Updates will be added regularly, with a time-lapse video capturing the entire process from Day One to Day Done. And, most importantly, we want continued feedback from you.
After brief comments on Facebook Live, I climbed into a large backhoe and dropped the first smashing claw on the drive-in’s southeast side! Press play to watch the footage.
