There may not be unanimous support for the downtown location and the cost of the Novato city administration offices, but public gets another chance to view and give input on the proposed design as the project moves through the design review process.
Hip roof or raked roof, limestone or brick, landscaping in the parking lot to allow for events and solar power are just a few of the city office design details being discussed at the Design Review Commisssion meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at .
So far, three public workshops have been held, and in November the city council gave direction to the architects after they presented variations for the building, parking and landscape. The complex is to be constructed at the corner of Machin Avenue and Cain Lane on an existing parking lot just behind Grant Avenue businesses.
Wednesday, RMW Architecture & Interiors will present a revised plan based on that public input and council direction, along with a scale model and samples of the materials to be used on the building.
So we ask Novato Patch readers, What are your thoughts about the direction of the architecture of the new city offices? Are you warming up to the idea of city offices downtown?
