Released By Osceola County Community Outreach/Public Information Office
The site of a new $5.5-million-dollar Osceola County Tax Collector’s service branch in Campbell City broke ground on Tuesday, November 5.
Construction of the facility is expected to be complete by the spring of 2020. The new office will feature more than 160 paved parking spaces and a complete road driving course for on-site license testing.
“This community investment will create better access for residents to the services provided by the Tax Collector’s office, while reducing the amount of traffic into and out of the Poinciana area,” said Commission Chairwoman Cheryl Grieb. “In the long-run this site will become a valuable community resource with convenient services and improved public safety.”
“We really needed a site where we could offer more services with better access for residents in Poinciana, Campbell City, ChampionsGate, Reunion and Celebration, so I’m really happy the County was able to acquire this site and move forward with construction of the new office,” said Osceola County Tax Collector Bruce Vickers.
Located south of Orange Blossom Trail and west of Whispering Pines Boulevard, the 11,000-square-foot service branch is part of a 19-acre vacant property acquired by Osceola County in June of 2018.
The Lunz Group is providing architectural, site engineering and planning for the entire site that will eventually include a community center and fire station that will replace the current Station 43 located at 1664 Broad Street.
Arnco Construction Inc. is the construction manager at risk for the Tax Collector’s office, as well as preliminary development of the remainder of the property.
