The City of Burnaby has extended the deadline for an online survey asking the community to share their thoughts on potential locations for a new City Hall.
Residents now have until July 30 to complete the survey. The survey seeks feedback on the location and possible programming space options for a new City Hall.
We have explored City-owned lands and are considering the Metrotown area as a possible location for a new City Hall due to its proximity to transit and the fact this area is designated as Burnaby’s downtown. Locating here would help establish the civic identity of this area and reinforce it as a focal point in our city.
Built in 1955, the current City Hall has reached the point where it has become too costly to upgrade. A recent analysis of the building shows that more than $70 million in upgrades will be required if we continue to use this building. What’s more, this huge cost would only bring it up to 60% of building code and would only extend the life of the building by 20 years.
