LFP City Hall reopens today
|Jeff Johnson, Mayor
City of Lake Forest Park
From Lake Forest Park Mayor Jeff Johnson
Only a few more days before Lake Forest Park City Hall reopens to the public. That’s right, on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 City Hall will again be open to conduct city business in person from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
Masks are required while visiting City Hall. In addition to masks, meetings with City staff, including Planning, Building, and Municipal Court will be by appointment only, and will require answering a COVID-19 questionnaire.
If you want to apply for a U.S. Passport, please note that appointments are now required. Check the City’s Passport Services webpage for information about scheduling an appointment and current appointment availability.
Passport Services hours are Monday, Thursday, and Friday, from 12:00 to 4:00pm, and Saturday, 10:00am to 3:00pm. Since the REAL ID Act requirements have been postponed to May 2023, it is not necessary to rush to get a passport or passport card if you are flying domestically.
The City’s public meetings -- City Council and Council Committees (Budget and Finance, Committee of the Whole), Planning Commission, Tree Board, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board -- will remain virtual for now.
Information about any changes to this will be widely distributed to the public when the time comes. Due to the small size of the Council Chambers, staff is working on the logistics of socially distanced seating for a seven-member City Council and nine-member Planning Commission, as well as a limited number of chairs for audience members.
It is probable that a hybrid approach to public meetings will be the norm in the future, with limited in-person public attendance and wider public participation via Zoom.
I’m happy to note that some of our events are returning this summer. Check the online Events Calendar for the latest updates.
We look forward to seeing you when we reopen on July 6.
