CONYERS — The Conyers City Council on Saturday arrived at a consensus to proceed with a proposal for construction of a new City Hall complex on property off Oakland Avenue north of Interstate 20. The move coincides with plans to revitalize public housing neighborhoods south of Green Street with a public-private partnership and build a senior citizen high-rise facility.

City Manager Tony Lucas presented the City Hall plans at the council’s annual weekend retreat, held at the Marriott Evergreen Conference Resort in Stone Mountain.

“We’re moving forward,” Lucas said when asked to describe the effect of the roundtable consensus reached by his staff, the five council members and Mayor Randy Mills. He said the next step will be to issue a request for proposals for the architectural design.

Preliminary designs reveal the future City Hall building will face Oakland Avenue north of I-20 and south of Hewlett Street.
