Outagamie County Downtown Campus Expansion - Exterior Building Rendering

Outagamie County has released a drawing of proposed expansion of the downtown campus: "The building addition is designed as a modern 'Art Deco' take on the original Administration Building; we are very excited about the visual enhancement this will provide to our campus/surrounding neighborhood, and are pleased with how it blends our various buildings on the campus to create better aesthetic cohesion. anticipate design to be completed by end of February; construction staging is tentative for May 2017."
We will be getting progress updates from the county to share with the neighborhood.
