Latest Updates on the NextGen Municipal Building Renovation Project

Improvements are still underway for the Upper St. Clair Library, Community Development Office, and Police Department. The NextGen Municipal Building Renovation Project construction has created the following relocations and closures:

-The Community Development office has moved to its new location at the front entrance of the Municipal Building to the right of the Administrative Offices and Tax Office.

-The Library parking lot will be closed during renovations of the Police Department.  Residents are encouraged to park at the side parking lot near the Veterans Park and Clair’s Kennel where signs will direct you to a pedestrian walkway to the main Library entrance.

-The Children’s Library playroom and the adult fiction area, including the DVDs and CDs section, remains closed.  Look for updates for the grand opening of the new Children’s Library in the near future.

If you can't find the book you're looking for, or if the book you would like is in an inaccessible area, library staff can order a copy of the book for you from another Allegheny County library. You may also reserve the book online by clicking Search Catalog on the Library website. Also keep in mind, our eBooks, streaming entertainment sites and more are available 24/7 for free with your library card. 

-The Municipal Playground will remain open but cannot be accessed at the Library parking lot, residents are encouraged to park at the McLaughlin Run Activity Center (MAC), 1770 McLaughlin Run Road.

There will be a temporary book drop off cart at Township Administration Reception in the front of the building during the summer hours of 7:30am – 3:30pm, Monday through Friday, for any Library patrons who wish to drop off books and have difficulty accessing parking or walking to the drop off location.

Library patrons who wish to pick up pre-ordered books from the parking lot are encouraged to call the Township Library line at (412)835-5540 or (412)831-9000 ext. 2830 and a Library Staff member will assist you.

NextGen Municipal Building Renovation Project
Planning for the NextGen Municipal Building Renovation Project began in September 2019 when the Upper St. Clair School District moved out of their wing of the Municipal Building. Construction began in the former school district wing in November 2021 and the overall project is expected to be complete by the end of 2022 or early 2023. 

The children's library will move from the third floor to the same floor as the adult library. A large connector is being built to connect the existing adult library and new children's library. In addition, crews are adding bathrooms to children's library area.  

On top of the library connector, residents will be able to enjoy a new rooftop deck.

Also included in the NextGen Project, the Upper St. Clair Police Department will receive a much-needed expansion and the Department of Community Development and Planning will move from the lower level of the building to the main, front lobby. After the project, residents will be able to access the Township Administration, Community Development and Planning, Police and Indentogo from the main front doors. 

Township staff thanks residents for their patience and understanding during the project. We hope you feel the temporary inconvenience will be worth it in the end.
