City Hall Construction Update

Construction to seismically upgrade the historic City Hall, upgrade the elevator to improve access to all areas of the building, and improve second floor public service areas is now coming to a close.

Acting on the recommendations in the City's Economic Development Strategy, a new Development Centre will open on the second floor of City Hall on Monday, April 8, designed to improve information and services for businesses and developers doing business in the Capital City.

Until April 8, residents can continue to access services at the following locations:

  • a temporary Development Services and Permits and Inspections counter is located across Centennial Square at 1689 Government Street (next to Starbucks). Please note this office will be closed as of noon on Friday, April 5 for moving.
  • a temporary Engineering counter is located in the first floor foyer of City Hall at the Douglas Street entrance
  • access to the rest of City Hall is limited to the Pandora Avenue and Centennial Square entrances including Council meetings and paying for parking tickets and property taxes

Residents are reminded that, in many instances, you can save yourself a trip to City Hall by accessing services online, including paying for parking tickets, disputing parking tickets, paying utility bills, and accessing tender documents.

We look forward to serving you in our new Development Centre on April 8!
