City Hall Moves Across Street To Temporary Location in Centennial Hall
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-February 23, 2023-City Hall is moving, and plans are underway to shift from the design/planning phase to abatement and construction of the new City Hall & Downtown Fire Station project in the coming weeks.
“The anticipation is building as staff moves out of the current facility and makes plans to continue municipal services for the next 18 to 24 months during construction,” commented Deputy City Manager Tom Leeson. “This project is long overdue and will serve our community for decades to come.”
The new Fire Station & City Hall project will transform a two-block section of downtown into a civic campus which will serve the community for generations. Located on 10th Street, between Oak & Lincoln, the downtown Fire Station and City Hall will redefine municipal services, bringing modern technologies and efficiencies, as well as an outdoor civic plaza for the benefit of citizens across the city.
The following schedule is currently planned for the next two months. Of course, weather and supply chain constraints could impact the schedule.
Adjacent Property Owners meet the team leading the construction portion of the project. This will provide businesses and residents immediately adjacent to the site insights on the project and connections with key individuals overseeing the project.

Final items will be removed from City Hall and the abatement process will begin. The entire process should last roughly four weeks. A perimeter fence will be placed around City Hall to restrict access. This will eliminate parking behind City Hall, as well as the row of parking directly in front of City Hall. The row of parking in front of Centennial Hall, 10th Street, as well as the 10th Street public parking lot will remain open. Beginning on Monday, March 13, all City Hall services will have been relocated to Centennial Hall and the Elkins House. All remaining City Hall furniture will be given away for free to the community. The city will be hosting several community giveaway days this week once staff has fully moved out of City Hall. Additional details will be shared prior to the giveaway days.

Construction mobilization will begin. A perimeter fence will be installed around both properties (existing City Hall and 10th Street parking lot) restricting access. At this point, 10th Street from the alley to Oak Street will be permanently closed, as will the 10th Street public parking lot. The alley from 10th Street to the Nordic Lodge property will also be closed. The row of parking on 10th Street immediately adjacent to the 10th Street parking lot will be closed; however, the row of parking on the other side of 10th Street will remain open (alongside the Conoco station).
A temporary City Hall has been established across the street in the foyer of Centennial Hall (124 10th Street). Upon entering the building, the front desk will greet citizens. Centennial Hall will house the City & Deputy City Manager offices, Finance, Planning, Human Resources, as well as temporary office spaces for remote employees. City Clerk and Facilities will be in the adjacent Elkins House. During construction, several employees will be working remotely, but available via phone and email during regularly scheduled hours.
