  • Town Hall houses and manages various local government departments for the town of Boone. These divisions include administration, finance, human resources, development services, public utilities, public works, the fire department and police.
    Boone’s Town Hall façade is composed primarily of brick. The main entrance is recessed into the building providing for an unobstructed flow of traffic. There are few windows except around this main entrance, which incorporates a 10’9” pane of glass along the façade. The rectilinear form of the building strays from the natural curve of the roadway, leaving a portion of the sidewalk uncovered by the arcade. As a result, the columns obstruct traffic. Recessed down lighting is provided under the arcade. Atop the arcadeis metal sheathing. Two flag poles are mounted to the exterior of the arcade. Along the sidewalk is a single street lamp near an appalcart stop.
    Along the bottom of the façade vegetation has been incorporated by the use of decorative flower boxes. These areas are incased in a light stone with wrought iron guard rail.
    Along the right side of the building there is a drop box and drive through drop off zone. There are several windows of varying sizes along this facade.
    Signage is mounted directly to the buildings façade. It is appropriately sized for viewing from both the street and sidewalk, though visible only if perpendicular to the buildings façade. The high contrast of white on black aids the visually impaired and disabled.
    The building is oriented toward the north-east. The façade will receive the most sunlight during the early afternoon hours, when not blocked by the surrounding buildings. During the late afternoon the exposed western façade would be most exposed to the sun.
