LINO LAKES CIVIC COMPLEX
Location: Lino Lakes, Minnesota
The Lino Lakes Civic Center creates a unified complex of city government and service facilities. It houses the Lino Lakes city hall, police and parks and recreation, as well as providing leased space for the Centennial Early Childhood Program. It is positioned as the accessible centerpiece of an expanding mixed-use planned development. A brick structure, with steep pitched roofs, nestled into the natural landscape, the Civic Center design, in character, scale and detail, is respectful and expressive of the historic heritage of the City of Lino Lakes. The architectural focal point is the Council Chambers, topped with a great blue heron weather vane- the city's symbol.
