The new City of Buda Municipal Complex features two new buildings on the site – a City Hall and Library building, joining the previously established Public Safety building. Situated adjacent to Stagecoach Park, this nine-acre site has a heritage of longhorn ranching, giant oak trees, and wildflowers. The buildings are sited to preserve several heritage oak trees and provide a natural landscape responsive to the occasional movement of stormwater through the site. The designs convey a sense of transparency, encouraging residents to observe, participate and engage in the processes that shape their evolving city.
The main building is the new home of the Library and City administrative offices, City Council Chambers, and the Economic Development Corporation. The citizen-focused City Hall and Library building create a central hub for Buda civic life and lay the foundation for continued community growth. A consolidated customer service area within the building reduces redundancy and confusion, streamlines civic processes, and provides flexibility for future growth.

The Public Safety building provides a new home for the Buda Police Department and easy access at a prominent main entry and a gated enclosure for secure officer parking. The secure yet welcoming reception area provides public interactions with the Department and a community meeting room for public meetings and interdepartmental training. The Public Safety building parking has two egress routes leading to Main Street for quick responses to community needs. Additionally, a Parks Maintenance building serves city staff with office space, storage, and a shared break room for Public Works and the Parks Maintenance crew, equipped with roof-top solar photovoltaics.
