ARCATA PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT MOVES TO CITY HALL ANNEX BUILDING ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2014

On Friday, February 28, 2014, the City of Arcata Public Works Department will be moving to the City Hall annex building at 525 9th Street next to the Arcata Transit Facility. This building formerly housed the City’s Redevelopment Agency.

Public Works services will be limited from Friday, February 28, 2014, through Tuesday, March 4, 2014, as the move is completed and phone and computer systems are installed. People and businesses needing encroachment permits are asked to apply well before moving day to ensure prompt processing.

On Wednesday, March 5, the Public Works Department will be open for business as usual. Encroachment permits will be issued at the annex building’s new lobby and the Public Works staff will assist people with road, water and sewer questions at that location. Building plan checks will be conducted in the main City Hall building at the Community Development public counter. The Public Works Department’s main phone number will continue to be (707) 822-5957.

“As our City has grown over the years so has the demand on staff to deliver more services to the community,” says Arcata City Manager Randy Mendosa. “Simply put, there is inadequate employee work space at City Hall. Moving Public Works engineering and administrative offices to the annex will help the City maintain existing levels of services.”

For more information, please call the Arcata Public Works Department at (707) 822-5957.
