The finishing touches are being placed on the renovation of 707 E Main and the Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) staff has spent the last week moving in and getting settled. The newly updated facility has a community room that will hold approximately 60 people with a nearby kitchen facility for meal prep and food service. The building houses three conference rooms that will allow for simultaneous meetings with clients or customers throughout the building and there is ample parking at both levels for convenient access to any of the divisions.
The building received a complete overhaul with a focus on energy savings and durable low maintenance materials. Throughout the project design, these key points remained a focus to ensure that operational and maintenance costs could be reduced in the future.
The new building will allow for improved staff facilities including adequate storage space for records and materials, ample office space, and the ability to organize the divisions in a cohesive manner. We look forward to the opportunity of improving services to the citizens of Bowling Green and having a facility to be proud of.
The City partnered with Harshaw Trane of Louisville for mechanical system engineering and Harshaw Trane is providing a guarantee of energy savings. Staff has used local vendors whenever possible to work on the building to ensure that we are supporting our local business community.
The various divisions located within the Neighborhood and Community Services Department includes Building Inspections, Housing, Neighborhood Services, Code Enforcement, Administration/Grants and City Central. Please note that all phone numbers and e-mail addresses of staff will remain the same.
