City Hall Rendering

Early architectural renderings of the new Iowa Falls City Hall show a mixture of brick, stone and metal siding on the exterior. Ground will be broken at the site east of the Barlow Library in September, and construction will be complete by June 2020.

The plans for a new city hall in Iowa Falls are moving forward, but not without a little bit of sticker shock.

Future City Hall Location

The new Iowa Falls City Hall will be built east of the Barlow Library. Construction could begin as early as the summer of 2019.

The project has been part of the city’s plans for years. When Barlow Memorial Library was built near the corner of Washington Avenue and River Street in 2000, city officials planned to leave the lot to the library’s east vacant, with the idea that it would eventually be the location of a new city hall. In 2014, the city began saving for a new city hall, with the first $100,000 set aside in the 2015-16 fiscal year. When the calendar rolls over to a new fiscal year next week, the fund will contain $1.2 million.
