Travelers Rest officials hold groundbreaking ceremony for new city hall, police department

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — Travelers Rest officials on Thursday held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new city hall and police department complex to be built adjoining Trailblazer Park.

Slated to cost an estimated $6 million, the approximately 17,000-square-foot complex includes city government offices, municipal court, council chambers, the police station, a public works building, and a visitor's center area.

First identified as a governmental "top priority" in March 2016, officials said the current city hall facility on State Park Road is dated and in need of expansion. Following preliminary space planning sessions, officials suggested building at the Trailblazer Park location would be an optimal solution, "streamlining the process for building permitting, business licensing and [city] administration" with all of the cities services located in one location.
