One of the great features of the new city hall is the 2,400 square-foot Community Room. This room was named deliberately, since it is intended for use by Cottonwood Heights citizens, groups and city partners.
It’s also available for private use.
The Cottonwood Heights City Council took special care to ensure that the room (and other meeting rooms) would be available and affordable for use within the community.
City partners and non-profit community groups associated with Cottonwood Heights will be able to use the facility for little or no cost. People who want to use the room for private or family events will be able to use the room for a minimal cost (see fee schedule below).
Category I: City Use (Includes organizations that the city is a member of or has a member of the Council or staff sitting on the board or committee).This group has first priority use of the building.
Category II: Short term and limited use of facilities by government agencies supported by Cottonwood Heights tax payers, school clubs and athletic groups that may be sanctioned by a school even if it is not funded by tax dollars, for single-use period of two hours or less in a 60 calendar day period.
Category III: Extended use of facilities by government agencies supported by Cottonwood Heights tax payers, schools within City boundaries, school clubs and athletic groups that may be sanctioned by the district even if it is not funded by tax dollars, if a meal is being served, and/or for periods longer than two hours, and/or a regular meeting held more frequently than noted above. (Note: Category II and III are the same groups, the difference is the length of the meeting, frequency of meetings, or if they are serving a meal that determines when a fee is required.)
Category IV: Charitable, non-profit, or non-commercial organizations, residents located in or living within Cottonwood Heights boundaries or for personal use (i.e. family gathering, reception, birthday party, non-profit sport organizations, etc.), and city employees for uses identified in this category.
Category V: Charitable, non-profit, or non-commercial organizations and residents’ not located or living within Cottonwood Heights boundaries or for personal use (i.e. family gathering, reception, birthday party, non-profit sport organizations, etc.).
Category VI: Commercial organizations (not permitted to sell products at the event or charge admission).
The council also worked to develop a use policy that defines parameters for use, rental fees and other restrictions that will help maintain the room and preserve it for future events.
