In November 2013, the residents of Bellaire passed an $11 million bond referendum which will allow the City of Bellaire to design and construct a new City Hall, Police Station, Municipal Court, and Civic Center. On May 27, 2014, the City Council chose a Campus Design for the layout of the new facilities. At this same meeting, Council was presented with a timeline of significant events throughout the Municipal Facilities Project.
Pierce Goodwin Alexander and Linville (PGAL) was selected as the project's architect at the September 22, 2014 Council meeting. Additionally, at its October 20, 2014 meeting, Council appointed seven (7) residents to the Ad Hoc Municipal Facilities Committee. The Committee’s role is to serve in an architectural advisory capacity to City Council regarding the development of the new city facilities.
