Municipal Complex Project
The Town of Tyrone has been working with the architectural firm Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood (GMC) for over a year on the design of a new building that will house Town Hall, the Police Department, and the Municipal Court in order to better serve our citizens into the future.
The building will be located directly across Senoia Road from Shamrock Park on 3.5 acres that was recently purchased from Mr. Harlie Deyton. This location will make the new building a beautiful centerpiece for the downtown area and, as one citizen put it, “provide an anchor for future development.”
This building will be approximately 20,000 s.f. and will include a combined Council Chambers & Courtroom, various meeting spaces, and extra office space to accommodate future growth. The total budget for this project is $5,000,000 and is funded through a bond, SPLOST dollars, and General Fund reserves.
Our contractor, Parrish Construction, expects to break ground in November 2019, begin “going vertical” in January 2020, and complete the project in approximately nine months.
