Dear Monroe residents,

As you may know, your city was included in the 12th Legislative District last year as a result of the state’s redistricting. As your State Senator, I was initially nervous about all the new constituents to meet, but I’m grateful to the people of Monroe who have welcomed me so graciously to the community. I’m excited to share the news with you about an important project underway.

The City of Monroe recently awarded a contract for its municipal campus renovation project. The project, with an approximate cost of $17 million, is a result of several years of coordinated efforts. It is scheduled to be completed in late 2025. I was proud to sponsor and helped secure $1.1 million state capital project funding for this project, which had support from all our 12th District legislators. I’d like to extend my congratulations to your city leaders and community on successfully starting the project.

After several years in operation, Monroe’s municipal building will receive much-needed improvements. The approximate $17 million project received $1.1 million from the state’s 2023-2025 capital budget. It will include remodeled council and court facilities, improved access for people with disabilities, and fire protection upgrades. For more information, click here.

Monroe’s campus modernization will include plenty of natural light and public seating. The overall remodeling and renovation project is expected to be completed in late 2025. I was honored to work alongside City of Monroe officials and my 12th District seatmates to support this project.

Municipal project overview

The City of Monroe’s municipal building will receive a significant remodel after several decades in operation. The approximate $17 million project is underway and expected to be completed in late 2025. The city’s facility, which once served as a local car dealership in the 1960s, was first utilized for city services in 1977. It has not received significant upgrades in over 30 years. The council chambers and staff offices will share the facility with the municipal and community courts. The court facilities will also receive improvements for use as a therapeutic court for people experiencing substance use challenges.

Since becoming your new State Senator, I have enjoyed our meetings with Monroe officials about city priorities. Your city officials discussed your municipal campus remodeling project during a visit to the State Capitol last year.

Future campus features

The remodeled facility will include more efficient service options for community members, enhanced security features for court proceedings, improved access for people with disabilities, fire protection and landscaping upgrades, and more. The facility will result in improved energy and environmental efficiency as recognized through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design “silver” standards. I was proud to sponsor the $1.1 million funding, which had support from all of our 12th District legislators. For more information, please click on the links below or contact the City of Monroe.
