ANNOUNCEMENT

Leasing Property at Waverly Commons
350 Old Virginia Street
Urbanna, VA
Town Hall Office/Town Council Chambers
November 12, 2021

Earlier this Fall, the Town was presented with an opportunity to lease a part of the “Waverly Commons” office building for use as the new Town Hall and offices. We believe the benefits of this opportunity outweigh remaining in the current building. The current Town Hall is an aging and “sick building” and we believe the risks and costs of remaining in the building will not be a financially wise decision for the Town of Urbanna.

The Finance Committee of the Urbanna Town Council has reviewed the cost options of leasing a new property versus making the needed repairs and improvements at our current location, 45 Cross Street, and has determined moving to this new location would be the financially responsible course of action.

Issues at the current building include:

  • Not ADA compliant
  • Archaic HVAC system in need of replacement
  • Antiquated duct work in need of replacement due to it posing a health risk
  • Antiquated electrical wiring
  • Concerns about the stability of the foundation and its ability to properly support the second floor
  • No room for growth
  • Layout of property and building does not benefit citizens, especially those with mobility challenges

Benefits of Waverly Commons:

  • Fully ADA compliant
  • One floor
  • Ample parking
  • Modern mechanical and electrical systems
  • Room for growth
  • Roof put on app. 9 years ago/40-year roof
  • Updated electrical/computer wiring

Disadvantages

  • Lease payment
  • Logistics of moving
  • Perception
  • Currently not in town

Owner to allow Town staff to begin moving once lease is approved, without incurring additional rental fees.

Planning Ahead

  • Boundary adjustment expands Town limits to include this property
  • Hall property of 10 acres to be included in Boundary adjustment

Town Council is expected to go into Closed Meeting during their next meeting, scheduled for Thursday, November 18th, to discuss this issue and ultimately, vote on how to proceed.
