New City Hall Project

The new City Hall project is moving forward! 

Early site work is expected to begin in June, including demolition of 320 and 366 A Ave (buildings east of the existing city hall), excavation, shoring, foundation, utility improvements and tree removal.

The new City Hall will provide a seismically safe, energy efficient and better functioning building for the community. It will include space for the Police Department and our 9-1-1 dispatch center (LOCOM), as well as public meeting places. It will also provide storefront space for the Lake Oswego Arts Council, and for the Friends of the Library’s “Booktique.”
