Moving Preparations Underway at Town Hall-
Town staff has had a busy start to the New Year. We are all working hard to pack and prepare for the upcoming move and relocation of Town Hall services to our interim location at Hunt Plaza, 240 Tamal Vista Blvd, Corte Madera. (Business office complex located at the southwest corner of Fifer Ave and Tamal Vista Blvd)
The last day Town Hall departments will be offering business services at 300 Tamalpais Drive, is Thursday, January 13, 2022. Following the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, and effective January 18, 2022, Town Hall business services will officially reopen to the public at our newly leased office complex at 240 Tamal Vista Blvd.
Business Suite 110, located on the first level at Hunt Plaza will become the Town’s interim home for the next two years, while the Town Hall construction project gets underway. Suite 110 will serve as the new home to the majority of Town Hall services & departments including the Administrative Department, Finance Department, Building and Planning Departments, our Public Works Counter, and our Code Enforcement Department. The Town’s Engineering Team will remain on site at 300 Tamalpais Drive in their temporary building and oversee the Town Hall construction project.
Business Suite 108, located directly across the hallway from suite 110 on the lower level, will serve as the interim Town Council Chambers. Suite 108, has been renovated with council dais furniture, seating and audio/videography equipment and will serve as the Town Council Chambers where both Town Council, Commissions, Boards and other public meetings will be heard in the near future. Remote streaming and participation in Town meetings will continue to be available both during and after our transition back to in-person meetings. (It has been our intention to resume in-person public meetings, with inclusion of a remote participation option, beginning on February 1, 2022, however, staff is monitoring the current increase in Covid-19 transmissions and County recommendations and will make a determination in the near future if a return to in-person public meetings should be delayed.)
In anticipation of our move, the Town continues to transition our outdated phone system to a VoIP internet phone system. During our VoIP phone migration process, we have experienced intermittent outages and a reduction in phone services. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve successfully migrated/integrated the majority of staff phone lines at Town Hall to our new VoIP phone system, however, this process has been arduous and five phone lines remain to be migrated: X5086- Admin Analyst, X5050- Town Hall Admin Line, X5055- Finance, X5057- Public Works Counter, & X5060- Pubic Works Customer Service.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and recommend that in the event of a disruption of phone service, to contact the appropriate staff member by email. To view a complete staff phone and email list, please click here.
We look forward to serving our Corte Madera community at our new Town Hall location on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Once we are moved in, and settled into our interim location, the Town intends to host an open house, inviting our community to enjoy and acquainted with our interim facilities.
