In response to additional guidance received by federal, state, and local public health officials, Arcadia City Hall will be closed to the public beginning Monday, March 16 until further notice. The city hall will still be fully staffed to respond to requests for services by phone, email, or online; however, as part of the city’s COVID-19 transmission mitigation efforts, they are requesting that the public refrain from coming to city hall.

The Arcadia Police Department and the Arcadia Fire Department, including emergency medical services, are fully operational. Community safety remains the city’s highest priority and both public safety departments have equipped department personnel with the necessary training and resources needed to establish good community-based behaviors that should help reduce the introduction or transmission of COVID-19.

If the public wishes to conduct city business, they are requesting that you contact the city department you are requesting services from directly.

To view all online service request options, visit the city website at ArcadiaCA.gov.

As a reminder, the Arcadia Community Center and the Arcadia Public Library are also closed to the public and non-essential personnel. This follows the city’s decision on March 9, to suspend city-sponsored events with an expected attendance of over 100 persons and a high attendance of senior citizens. Further, on March 13, all City of Arcadia Recreation & Community Services Department after-school programs at Arcadia Unified School District schools were cancelled for the same duration of the district’s closure.

For more information regarding the City of Arcadia’s response to COVID-19 along with future updates regarding city events and services, visit ArcadiaCA.gov or call at (626) 574-5401.
