EUGENE, Ore. - Eugene residents will get a look at what their next City Hall will look like Monday night.

Architects in charge of designing the new building will update the Eugene City Council on their work.

John Rowell of Rowell Brokaw Architects of Eugene said they are working closely with the City in it's design.

The council has previously agreed with city officials that it does not make financial sense to renovate the existing building.

The new City Hall will replace the aging, structurally compromised, energy inefficient City Hall on East 8th Avenue.

The City has a budget of $15 million for design, engineering, demolition and construction.

The new building will include space for the city manager's office, mayor, council and community meeting rooms.

According to a City spokesperson, the presentation will include a sketch and design details of the new building.

The new City Hall is expected to be completed by December 2015.

The meeting will be held in Harris Hall in the Lane County Courthouse, 125 East 8th, starting at 5:30 p.m.
