New Location for Supervisor of Elections Office
Published February 25th, 2014
ALACHUA COUNTY- Moving the supervisor of elections office to a larger building has been a long time coming--8 years to be exact.
The Alachua County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously this morning to begin contract negotiations with nalbandian properties for a lease to own agreement at 515 North Main Street.
The move will allow the Supervisor of Elections Office to consolidate the space it needs into one building rather than the 3 that currently house all the equipment.
According to a space needs assessment gathered in 2012, the supervisor of elections requires near 40,000 square feet of room in the building to adequately store their their equipment.
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections, Pam Carpenter says, "we're really excited to see that the county is moving forward with, the negotiations to purchase the 515 North Main Street building, it's really a beautiful building and it's a prime location for county offices
After contract discussions are complete, county staff will meet with architects to discuss expanding the building from its current 24-thousand square feet.
Carpenter hopes to be moved into the building by April 15th of 2015 in order to have enough time to prepare for the Presidential Preference Primary.
The Property Appraiser's office will also be moved to the 515 building.
It's the county goal to get everyone out of lease space and into county owned property.
