Brighton City Government Moving to New Home - (Following Adams County Down The Street)

Brighton held its last city council meeting in what will now be known as Historic City Hall on Tuesday, August 16, 2011. The Historic City Hall is located at 22 South 4th Avenue in Brighton and was originally the Adams County Government Center, which opened on May 10, 1906 for a cost of $41,725.

In 1975, the then "new" Adams County Government center was built at 500 South 4th Avenue in Brighton, which will now become the new Brighton City Hall. On September 11, 1977 the old Adams County Government Center became the new Brighton City Hall at 22 South 4th Avenue for a cost of $175,000. Brighton burned that mortgage on November 26, 1986.

Now that Adams Crossing has been built and has become the newest Adams County Government Center, Brighton has purchased the old Adams County Government Center (the one built in 1975) for $5 million dollars and located at 500 South Avenue and repainted the outside to a new brown color, which identifies it nicely as being new for Brighton. And if you want to attend Brighton City Council meetings, this is the building you now want to go to starting next Tuesday.

So yes, Brighton always buys the last building that has housed the Adams County Government, so my prediction is in 2075, Adams Crossing will be the future new Brighton City Hall, and maybe the Adams County Government Center will be located somewhere along Highway 2 South.
