Groundbreaking Ceremony - Township Administrative Building

Groundbreaking-28

Today, Liberty Township’s Board of Trustees’ Chairman Bryan Newell, Trustee Shyra Eichhorn, Trustee Scott Donaldson and Fiscal Officer Rick Karr hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for Liberty Township’s new Administrative Office and Township Hall. The construction of the new facility has an estimated completion date of Fall of 2022.
 
“Today’s groundbreaking marks a milestone for our community. In order to keep up with our Township's growing needs, this building will offer flexible meeting space to allow multiple meetings at one time - all with the goal of making our community an exceptional place to live, work and play,” said Chairman Newell. “Additionally, I’m pleased that this facility can be done without raising a penny in taxes, maintaining our discipline and vow of fiscal responsibility. This building would not be possible without our local entities both in the Township and the County working together with the goal of bettering our community. I look forward to seeing what other future endeavors can be accomplished by working together."  Last Fall, the Liberty Township Trustees entered into an agreement with the Finance Authority and the Treasurer’s office to purchase bonds for three projects, one being $2.3 million for a new township hall. 
 
“This project is a great example of the collaboration and teamwork between the Liberty Township leaders. The new Hall addresses the needs of Liberty Township and Powell area and utilizes the DCFA Bond Program to deliver the new Liberty Township Hall within the Township’s budget funding and no tax increases to residents or businesses for the facility,” said Donald Rankey, Jr., Delaware County Treasurer.  
 
The new facility is scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2022 and will provide a "one-stop-shop" for Township Administrative Offices, which will include the Administrator's Office, Zoning and Fiscal. The new Hall will also have a large, modern meeting space to accommodate large groups and which may be split into smaller meeting rooms. The building will sit just north of the YMCA and across from Liberty Township Fire Station #321.
