ROADMAP TO RECOVERY Arcadia City Hall Open by Appointment Only

Arcadia Library and Community Center Remain Closed Virtual Services are Still Available and Encouraged

May 18, 2020 – The City of Arcadia is reopening City Hall to the public for services by appointment only for essential activities in response to the revised Safer at Home Order issued by Los Angeles County on May 13, 2020. These include building permits, inspections, and planning related services. A What’s Open Guide is listed below with more information on each City department.

City Hall is still fully staffed to respond to requests for services by phone, email, or online, and the public is encouraged to continue to use these services in order to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Arcadia City Council and Planning Commission meetings will still be conducted virtually until further relaxing of the Safer at Home Order by Los Angeles County.

“We are transitioning to Phase 2 of the County’s Roadmap to Recovery,” said City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto. “As we ease back into more normal activity we are looking at ways to continue to provide high quality services to our community. Our virtual services have been very popular over the past few months and we encourage Arcadians to continue to utilize them; however, we recognize that not all City business is best suited for this,” he added.

On May 13, 2020, the County of Los Angeles amended the Safer at Home Order to allow retail establishments, open spaces, and other non-essential services to begin reopening under certain guidelines and restrictions. A copy of the revised Los Angeles County Order and additional regulations can be found on the City’s website at or by visiting
