State Division of Blind Services to operate café with plans to open in June.
City Hall is gaining a café.
The state Division of Blind Services will operate the café, which city spokeswoman Tia Ford anticipates will open in June.
The space is where a break room with vending machines now operates near the information desk.
Plans show the 996-square-foot café would have space for a few tables and chairs and a standing counter, but the focus will be on takeout food.
Ford said it would take two months to complete the renovations after a contract is executed.
A pending permit lists Auld & White Constructors LLC as the licensed contractor.
Ford said in an email the café will be opened “to provide better support for City staff and citizens that utilize the St. James Building.
