WeHo City Hall to Remain Open During Lobby Renovation

101

The lobby at WeHo City Hall is getting a face lift. The Renovation project will impact the building’s first-floor lobby and second-floor waiting areas. The project will start on Friday, March 23, 2018. Improvements are anticipated to be completed by September 2018.

All regular services offered at City Hall — including access to the City Hall cashier, parking services, rent stabilization and housing services, planning and development services, building and safety services, and more — will operate as usual during construction. Visitors may be redirected from regularly accessed counters as construction progresses. Signage will be posted at City Hall to provide directions and staff members will be available to assist visitors. Construction is anticipated to take place at nighttime to allow for uninterrupted daytime access to the public.

All City Commission and City Advisory Board meetings regularly held in the Community Conference Room at West Hollywood City Hall will be temporarily relocated either to Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, or to the West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Community members who wish to attend meetings are encouraged to check the City of West Hollywood’s meeting and events calendar at weho.org/city-hall/meetings-this-month or the appropriate posted agendas for meetings, which include location information at weho.org/agendas.

The WeHo City Hall Lobby Renovation Project will modernize access to a range of services with a newly designed reception desk area to welcome visitors. There will be a new staircase to connect the ground-floor lobby area with second-floor services, such as planning and development services and building and safety services, which will eliminate the need to wait for a busy elevator. Improvements will include updated customer service counters for parking services and rent stabilization and housing services, as well as an expanded counter for the City Hall cashier and City Clerk’s Office. Lighting will be modified and improved on both levels.

For questions about public meetings for City Commissions and City Advisory Boards, please contact the City of West Hollywood’s City Clerk’s Office at (323) 848-6409.
