Aspen Relocating to New City Hall

Aspen Relocating to New City Hall 
Staff start moving on November 8, building opens for business on November 15

Aspen’s City Hall is on the move! City staff will begin moving into the community’s new City Hall, located at 427 Rio Grande Place, the week of November 8. This move brings to fruition a project that has been in the works for approximately six years. The building will officially open to the community for business operations on Monday, Nov. 15, 2021. A grand opening celebration is planned for mid-December, once staff transition into the new space is complete.

City services will continue throughout the move; however, community members conducting City business or attending City meetings may experience slight delays in response times. Staff appreciates your patience during the move and while adjusting to the new arrangements. The City recommends that those conducting business during the move period reach out via virtual means to minimize disruptions. All phone numbers, services, and business hours remain the same.  

City business will be conducted in person at the new Rio Grande Place location starting Monday, Nov. 15, 2021. City Council, however, will continue to hold meetings at the Armory, 130 South Galena Street, through November as supply chain disruptions delayed the AV equipment needed to broadcast from the new facility. The first City Council meeting held in the new City Hall is scheduled for December 7.

The new site consolidates several City services into one facility, allowing the community to obtain information and services easily. This move also allows the City to reduce its externally leased spaces as workgroups relocating from these areas into the new facility.  

Once open for community business, the public will experience the ease of finding many related services under one roof. The lower level of the building includes the main entrance off of Rio Grande Place, the Community Development and Engineering Departments, and a seating area by the grand staircase. The middle level consists of the City Manager’s Office, City Attorney, City Council workspace, and Finance Department. The upper level, accessible from Galena Plaza, will house the new Council Chambers, City Clerk, and a training room/community meeting space. The Human Resources and Parking Departments will be located in the newly remodeled, attached Rio Grande building.

The City of Aspen’s IT and Utility Billing Departments will remain at The Armory, which has been the seat of Aspen’s city government since 1956.
