Herriman City leaders first envisioned a new town center and city hall in 2008. After years of preparation and financial planning, city officials broke ground in late 2015 on a major project they believed would serve as a gathering place for the community as well as stimulate economic growth through its all-inclusive design.
Scott Henriksen, AIA, GSBS Design Architects said “The architects spent several weeks working with the city council and city staff to verify the program and needs of each department while maintaining functionality and efficient use of space. After several ideas and concepts were considered, GSBS Architects submitted interior and exterior designs for the new structure and surrounding town center amenities. The GSBS Team included Scott Henriksen, Brian Jacobson, Erin Holcombe, Jeff Bolinger, Allison Mitchell, Jesse Allen, Bryce Ward, Eric Stanley, David Brems, and Christine Richman.
On September 22, 2017, the dream was realized when the doors to the new Herriman City Hall were officially opened. City Hall is the centerpiece of The Towne Center, a 6-acre park with a splash pad, ice ribbon, a history walk, and an amphitheater and band-stand. The park will be outlined by retail buildings with restaurants and boutique style shopping. Herriman’s New City Hall consolidates city activities under one roof, allowing residents access to all government services. In addition to providing city services as well as Justice Court, the new building will also house the Unified Police Department’s Herriman Precinct.
Herriman officials said they “are thrilled to be continuing the vision from years ago when the city secured this location for city hall. We have worked long and hard on the design and layout to assure the facility and park are an enhancement to the area while keeping with the traditional look and feel that is Herriman City.”
