PHOENIX – One West Valley suburb is getting a new city hall as part of an ambitious plan to create a community centerpiece.

This week, the Goodyear City Council approved a letter of intent to partner with a Valley real estate investment company to develop a community gathering spot along with a permanent city hall.

“Goodyear has envisioned a city hall project like this for decades,” Mayor Georgia Lord said in a press release Thursday.

“Our current city hall, which requires future funding for reinvestment and expansion, was meant to be temporary.”

In addition to the city government’s headquarters, Goodyear Civic Square at Estrella Falls will include a library, a 2-acre park and office space.

“Goodyear will now be able to compete to attract high-end office users, which will bring even more high-quality jobs to the area,” Lori Gary, the city’s economic development director, said in the release.

The project, located north of McDowell Road near 150th Drive, is expected to be completed by mid-2022.

The civic square will be built on 47 acres owned by Globe Corporation, which will donate some of land as part of a public-private partnership.

According to an action report, it will cost the city an estimated $83 million.

More details about the project will be made available this summer.
