WEST HOLLYWOOD—The city of Hollywood will commence its lobby renovation project for City Hall on Friday, March 23. The renovation will impact the building’s first-floor lobby and second-floor waiting regions. According to the city of West Hollywood website, the project is expected to be completed by September 2018.

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

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 could be redirected from regularly accessed counters as construction progresses; wayfinding signage will be visible at City Hall to provide directions and staff members will be available to assist visitors. The renovations are expected to transpire during the night hours to prevent interruptions to daytime operations for the public.

All City Commission and City Advisory Board meetings normally held in the Community Conference Room at West Hollywood City Hall will be temporarily moved to either Plummer Park located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard or to the West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.

Members of the community interested in attending the meetings are asked to check the city of West Hollywood’s meeting and events calendar at www.weho.org/city-hall/meetings-this-month or the appropriate posted agendas for meetings, which include location information at www.weho.org/agendas.
