The City and Borough of Juneau is considering development of a new City Hall and is looking for public input. Some issues of consideration include site selection and budgeting, or if CBJ offices should remain in the current locations. Share your thoughts in a short survey. Take the survey now.
CBJ offices are currently spread out among five facilities downtown, with annual rental costs of about $750,000. What CBJ pays in rent annually would finance a $12 million 30-year bond. The cost of a new facility depends on many factors, including whether it’s a new structure or a remodel of something existing.
Take the survey now here. Once complete, individuals have the option of entering a drawing to win one of three $100 VISA gift cards.
