Citrus Heights prepares for move to new City Hall

Citrus Heights city offices will be closed from Friday through Aug. 8 as staff members move from temporary quarters into the newly constructed City Hall at 6360 Fountain Square Drive.

Thursday will be the last day of business at 7927 Auburn Blvd., in the Grand Oaks shopping center. City offices will reopen for business in the new City Hall at noon Aug. 9, according to a city news release.

City staff members vacated the former civic center at Greenback Lane and Fountain Square Drive in July 2015. The buildings, once home to the Fountain Square Nursery, were demolished to make way for a medical office building to be occupied by Dignity Health. At the same time, construction began on the new $22 million City Hall building on Fountain Square Drive, just north of the Citrus Heights post office.

The new, single-story City Hall will provide office space for 65 employees who previously were housed in four separate buildings.

The city will hold a dedication ceremony for the new City Hall at 9 a.m. Aug. 25, with public tours scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
