Cottonwood Heights began the demolition of eight homes located at the corner of 2300 East and Bengal Blvd. on Friday, November 3, 2014, to make room for a new municipal center.

Mayor Kelvyn Cullimore and the Cottonwood Heights City Council helped operate the huge tractor as the home on 7550 S. 2300 East came tumbling down on Monday, November 3, 2014.  

It was the first of eight homes on the block that were be demolished on the site where the new Municipal Center will stand.

At the beginning of March 2014, the city council announced plans to build Cottonwood Heights' first city hall building after renting office space for ten years. (Read the full announcement).

Construction will begin in the spring of 2015, with completion scheduled for the summer of 2016.
