New Civic Complex To Be 'Heart Of Goodyear'
The Goodyear City Council has approved plans to build a new city hall, library and green space for public events. The goal is to create a destination for work and play.
Goodyear is one of the state’s fastest-growing cities with more than 84,000 people. And for the past 35 years, plans to build a new city hall never materialized, until now.
“This project has started and stopped 5 different times," City Manager Julie Arendall said. "We’ve had four different citizens committees study the project.”
Arendall said the new civic complex will also feature 100,000 square feet of high-end commercial office space.
“And so now you’ve created a daytime density that’s going to bring the retail, entertainment and restaurant opportunities our residents are hungry for," Arendall said. "So it’s creating a new gathering space, what we’re calling the heart of Goodyear.”
The Goodyear Civic Square at Estrella Falls should be completed in 2022.
