City of Lake Elmo Combined City Hall & Public Safety Facility

Lake Elmo, Minnesota

The new Lake Elmo city hall & public safety facility combines city hall staff and functions, the entire fire department, and a satellite office for the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. This co-location involves renovating and expanding the city-owned Brookfield office building to concentrate civic resources into a single structure at the historic core of the city. In addition, the public works facility will also be expanded to accommodate city growth and expanded service needs.
