Woodburn City Hall closes Dec. 24 to temporarily relocate
Woodburn City Hall will be moving from its permanent location for about six months while it undergoes a significant repair and renovation project this winter and spring.
During the project, City Hall and all of its services will be moved to a temporary location at 970 N. Cascade Drive. It is a visible facility located at the intersection of Highway 214 and Cascade Drive.
All current services being provided at the Montgomery Street City Hall location will be provided there, including municipal court, in-person bill pay and building permits.
The exception will be City Council and planning commission meetings, which will be held in the Woodburn Police Department's community room.
City Hall will close Dec. 24 and reopen at the temporary location Dec. 31.
Anyone sending mail to City Hall should still send items to 270 Montgomery St. During the week City Hall is closed, items can also be accepted in person at the Woodburn Public Library, 280 Garfield St.
The temporary location has a parking lot with 42 spaces. If the lot is full, on-street parking is available along Cascade Drive.
The renovation project at City Hall is anticipated to take six months to complete and includes:
• Replacing the end of life HVAC system with one that is more energy efficient;
• Replacing the central roofing section, which has been the source of significant leaks in recent years
• ADA improvements to restrooms, public service counters, drinking fountain
• Seismic improvements
• Council chambers updates
• Improvements to building security
• Re-configuring Finance and Community Development counters to improve customer service
• Re-configuring existing space to provide additional employee work areas.
