HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The new Madison County Service Center located at 1918 North Memorial Parkway will officially open Monday, March 1, 2021 following the relocation of several departments to the Service Center during the month of February.
The Service Center project began in 2015 to identify and acquire property in Madison County with a focus on a central and convenient location for Madison County residents. In 2018, Huntsville-based Chapman Sisson Architects began the design of the 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. Following the 2019 purchase of 7.77 acres at the corner of North Memorial Parkway and Oakwood Avenue and an environmental impact study, the Madison County Commission awarded Huntsville General Contractor Lee Builders, Inc. the $11.5 million construction contract in September 2019. The construction of the new Madison County Service Center was completed under budget by more than $2 million.
Madison County Commission Chairman Dale W. Strong said, “The new Madison County Service Center offers a convenient location for Madison County residents to quickly take care of their needs.” Chairman Strong added, “We focused on convenience in areas including parking with more than 350 free parking spaces along with prompt service featuring a queuing system allowing residents to choose the reason for their visit while waiting in the spacious and comfortable lobby.”
The Madison County Board of Registrars and Sales Tax departments have permanently relocated from their Cook Avenue location, and the License, Probate, Tax Assessor, and Tax Collector departments have permanently relocated from their offices in the Madison County Courthouse to the new Service Center.
