2017 preview

From better facilities to new parks and playgrounds to a plan to bring better internet speeds to the city, there's much for Spring Hill to look forward to in 2017! 

  1. By the end of 2017, Spring Hill residents will have a wonderful new place to gather together for recreational, cultural, community, and civic activities.
    The Spring Hill Civic Center revitalization project will move forward this year, updating the aging existing facility at 401 N. Madison with a comprehensive range of mechanical, structural, security, and cosmetic improvements.
    With the design for the renovation now completed by Treanor Architects, bids for construction are expected to be published in early January. Work is expected to begin in the first quarter of the year and take about six to eight months to complete. While the building is renovated, City Hall services will be relocated to 102 S. Main St. All meetings previously hosted at the Civic Center have been moved to alternate locations, and room rentals will not be available.
    The February issue of The Outlook will feature more detailed information on the project's schedule and how this renovation will affect customers during construction. 
  2. The City's new Broadband Task Force will have its first meeting late January. Over the next six months, the group will examine and evaluate the feasibility of establishing either a public broadband utility or a utility through a public/private partnership. The group is expected to make a recommendation to the Governing Body at the conclusion of this six-month period.
  3. Spring Hill received a matching grant for two new pieces of playground equipment in 2016. These new play sets will be installed at City Park and Veterans Park (design option pictured) in 2017. 
  4. The first phase of construction will begin at Veterans Park to make the park accessible for recreational activities at the City Lake this year. A complete design for the park will also be selected in 2017.
