In keeping with the City of Spring Hill’s expansion plans, the Building Codes & Inspections and Planning & Zoning Departments soon will be the first municipal departments to move from City Hall to the City-owned Northfield Building Complex.
The move, occurring the week of Dec. 26, will cause a brief disruption of service. If it’s possible for members of the public or developers needing planning, codes or development-related transactions to schedule any submittals you may have outside of the week of Dec. 26, please do so.
When these services have relocated from City Hall, 199 Town Center Parkway, to Northfield, 5000 Northfield Lane, here’s what you’ll need to know:
The Building Codes & Inspections and Planning & Zoning Departments will be located in Building 500.
• Public parking, including accessible parking spaces, is provided in front of Building 500.
• After entering Door 500, go up the stairs or elevator to the second floor where you’ll pass through the double doors. Enter the door on the right to our offices, Suite 520.
• All doors leading to these offices will be equipped with ADA-accessible, push-button door entry.
• Payment options: Cash, check and credit/debit card payments will be accepted at the Northfield offices.
• All City of Spring Hill-related Planning meetings (including the Staff Technical Review With Applicants Meeting, Pre-Application Meetings, and any other development-related appointments with the Planning and Codes Departments) will be held in the new Planning and Codes conference room within Suite 520, starting Jan. 1.
The two-story, 355,000-square-foot Northfield office building is roughly two miles southwest of City Hall, off Saturn Parkway and U.S. 31. The seven connected buildings on 38 acres served as the original Saturn Headquarters. The City purchased the building in December 2017 from the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance for $8.1 million with plans to renovate it over time to expand and relocate City services.
Construction is set to begin this winter on the renovation of Northfield Building 100 for the new, greatly expanded Spring Hill Public Library. Later in 2019, Building 700 will be renovated for the new Spring Hill Police Headquarters. Public Works and the GIS/IT Department are considering moving each of their operations into a portion of the building. Northfield also currently serves a wide range of lease tenants, including satellite locations of college and technical school programs, two call centers, the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce, among other private offices, which brings in rental income that helps the City to offset the cost of owning and maintaining the building.
