City Hall Renovations

City Hall is under construction. The 171 year-old building is really showing her age again and these will be the first significant improvements made to the interior of City Hall since the complete restoration in 1998.

The Mayor's Office will be temporarily located at the Manchester Health Department at the Rines Center, 1528 Elm Street beginning July 5th; they will be located there until probably mid-August. The phone number and emails will not change for the Mayor’s staff. On July 5th, the demolition of City Hall East flooring in the common areas and grand staircase will begin. There will be significant disruptions and inconveniences to daily life here at City Hall therefore we are asking for patience and cooperation through this process.

Access to Economic Development and the City Clerk’s Office will also be significantly impacted. Customer service staff from the City Clerk's Office will be temporarily located in a shared space of the Economic Development Office. Customers who are able to mail or drop off vital record requests at the Clerk's Office are advised to do so during the construction period to avoid inconveniences. The City Clerk's Office will be open regular hours only through July - 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be someone guiding customers through the building and signage will be displayed to help those traveling through City Hall to find their way.

After the demolition is complete (approximately July 13th) the elevator will be operational again but the grand staircase will remain closed while ceiling work and painting is completed. Painting and flooring for those areas will be completed over a period of about four weeks.

We ask for your patience over the next several weeks.
