The Johnson County Administration Building, 913 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City, is set to undergo a significant remodel to better serve the residents of Johnson County. The remodel will enhance safety, accessibility, and productivity, aligning with the county’s core values while ensuring the efficient delivery of services for decades to come.
Construction is scheduled to commence in October 2023, and will involve installation of a new HVAC and fire suppression system, along with major accessibility upgrades and other service-centered improvements. This will create additional space for future County needs.
During the remodel, the Administration Building will be temporarily closed to the public. To ensure continued service, all County services typically available at this location will be relocated to the Health and Human Services Building, 855 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City. The public will need to visit this alternative location for their service needs, where staff will be ready to assist them.
As the remodel date draws closer, Johnson County will share more detailed information regarding when specific offices and departments will be relocated, helping residents plan and access services conveniently.
Funding for this project will be sourced through a combination of general funds and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal funds, with a firm commitment that taxes will not be raised to finance the remodel.
Johnson County remains committed to delivering high-quality services while creating a safer, more accessible, and productive environment for all residents and staff. The County anticipates completion of the project in the summer of 2024 and looks forward to welcoming the community back to an improved Administration Building.
