Township Hall Project

Site Selected for New Township Hall

We are pleased to announce that the Township Board has selected the site for the new Township Hall! Based on feedback received through our community survey, the Township Board initiated a Request for Proposals for vacant sites within Texas Corners earlier this summer. With the assistance of our design firm, the Township Board evaluated four parcels submitted as part of the RFP. 
On November 22, the Township Board approved a purchase agreement for the parcel directly west of Texas Square Mall. This is contingent upon a few items being finalized by closing, which should occur before the end of the year.
Here are a few highlights: 
  • The Farmers' Market Pavilion and Fire Station will remain at their current location
  • The Township Hall will be placed on the new site, but exact placement hasn't yet been determined
  • Construction timeline is still to be determined
A large factor in this decision was the ability for the Township to help facilitate the development of the Ring Road, providing greater connectivity in Texas Corners. As part of the Master Plan, the Ring Road is set to connect across this parcel. And ironically enough, this location was strongly considered for the Township Hall 20 years ago! There are still a lot of details to work through, so please stay tuned for more information.

Site Selected for New Township Hall

Project Overview and Need

In 2015/2016, Texas Township began evaluating options for a redesign of the existing Township Hall. The current structure was constructed over 30 years ago with an addition (where the current staff offices are located) constructed in 1994-1995. A Fire Station addition was built in 2012 to accommodate the implementation of a full-time Fire Department.

Over the past twenty years, the township has experienced substantial growth; the current Township Hall is inadequate to meet the current and future needs of the township. Additionally, the existing facility has numerous structural issues and areas that need substantial repair.

In 2016, the Township Board contracted with Wightman and Associates to complete a Feasibility Study of the existing building. In 2017/2018, the Township Board contracted with Progressive AE to complete a schematic design of a new/expanded facility on the existing site. That process presented many challenges due to space constraints and site limitations. Due to the historic flooding impacting hundreds of residents, the project was placed on hold.

In late 2020, as the flood mitigation efforts dramatically improved, the board decided to re-engage the project.
