I recently came across the following announcement (at the end of my post below) about the City Hall move on NextDoor.
As the City Council has been discussing the new City Hall project, it has directed staff to look for a new place to move City offices, in case it finally approves the construction budget in the end. Please note that though the Council has supported the new location (through resolution 19-G-37), the Council has not approved the timing of the move. The Council has yet to decide/vote on two critical motions (bond ordinance and resolution) on the City Hall funding – in the next two months. Ideally, no one should be guessing the outcome on these two votes. Because of this uncertainty on these pending votes, the City Council has been cautious about stating the availability of the City Hall in the upcoming months. When the Council voted last month on the new polling place at Richie’s Coliseum, part of the motion was amended from “the City Hall WILL not be available” to “the City Hall MAY not be available” in November.
City Hall is Moving!
City Hall is moving! With construction of the new City Hall scheduled to begin early next year, the current City Hall at 4500 Knox Road is closing. Beginning September 1, 2019, all Mayor and Council meetings will take place at Davis Hall (9217 51st Avenue).
On Monday, October 7, the Department of Planning, Community & Economic Development and the Parking Enforcement Division of the Department of Public Services will relocate to 8400 Baltimore Avenue Suite 340 (co-located with the Department of Public Services).
Parking permits will still be issued at the current City Hall until October 14.
On Monday, October 14, Administration, Finance and Human Resources will relocate to 8400 Baltimore Avenue Suite 375. Effective October 15, 2019, the new mailing address for City Hall will be 8400 Baltimore Avenue Suite 375, College Park, MD 20740.
City phone numbers and office hours (Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) will remain the same. For more information about the City Hall project, please visit www.collegeparkmd.gov/cityhall.
