Building Our Future

On July 9, 2022 the City Council and community members gathered to break ground on Cedar Hill's new, state of the art Library, Museum, & Signature Park! This project will bring new opportunities for businesses, families, and the entire community. Construction is now underway with the Grand Opening set for 2024. #BuildingOurFuture

Background Information
In November 2017, voters overwhelmingly approved a bond proposition to fund a new public library that would meet current and future needs for businesses and entrepreneurs, children and teens, and the broader community. The new library would be four times the size of the existing building and provide for new technology, flexible program space, and community meeting rooms.

In 2018, the City Council appointed a Site Advisory Committee to evaluate potential locations for the new library. The committee recommended the library be built adjacent to the new signature park near Pioneer Trail and Uptown Blvd. The Library, Museum and Signature Park site highlights the natural beauty of Cedar Hill. The site backs up to Bentle Branch creek with unique topography and natural amenities. The project, located in the heart of the Midtown District, will serve as a catalyst for high-quality pedestrian-oriented development that offers unique shops, dining, cultural attractions, and living opportunities.

    Has a site for the new library been recommended by the committee? What are the plans for the old library building when the new library is completed?

    Jerry Cotton asked almost 5 years ago

    Thank you for your question. The committee recommended a site for the new library, and we are currently in negotiations to acquire the site. The new site will be announced once the City closes on the property. 

    Plans have not been made for the future of the current library building.
