Facility to Include City’s Administration Offices and Records Storage
Port Orange, FL…The City of Port Orange will commemorate the opening of the Dorothy L. Hukill City Center Annex with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The event will take place on Friday, February 22, from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm at 1395 Dunlawton Ave. in Port Orange.
The building was built in 1985 and was once used to house the Port Orange Police Department before a larger space was built for the department, now on Clyde Morris Blvd since 2010. On July 2017, in unanimous vote, the City Council made the decision to rename the building, the Dorothy L. Hukill City Center Annex, after a former Port Orange Mayor and a former Florida Senator, before her passing in late 2018. After one year of renovations, the 17,000 square feet building now includes office space for the City’s Public Works and Utilities Administration, Parks & Recreation Administration, and Records Storage for the City Clerk’s office.
“The Dorothy L. Hukill City Center Annex is the gateway to our City Center Complex and has held substantial history in serving our citizens,” said Mayor Don Burnette. We are excited to be able to again utilize this building as our city continues to grow and expand to better serve our citizens. Its namesake was a relentless public servant, and the services offered in this building on behalf of our citizens will do the same.”
Project design was provided by DJ Design Services, Inc and construction was performed by AG Pifer Construction. Team members from many city departments played a vital role in the project renovations as well. Project costs totaled $2,075,649.
At the celebration, guests can tour the renovated facility and refreshments will be served.
