Service at a Whole New Level: Ribbon Cutting for New City Building on May 10

City services will be taken to a whole new level for residents and businesses when the new City building opens this summer with the aim of centralizing departments into a “government corridor” in downtown Sioux Falls. A ribbon cutting for the building is scheduled for Thursday, May 10, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. This will be the public’s first opportunity to get a sneak peek inside the facility. The building will be fully staffed and open for business on Monday, June 25.

“This grand investment will provide the best in service and pride for our citizens and employees for generations to come. Over 85 years is a long time to wait since building our last building in 1933, but the wait and effort is worth it,” says Mayor Mike Huether.

The building is located at 231 North Dakota Avenue. Between May 10 and June 25, the building will undergo some final touches, landscaping, and furniture and technology installations. The occupancy plan allows room for growth in both the new building and at City Hall and will increase collaboration between areas that frequently interact.
