NORRISTOWN- Government offices in Norristown Municipal Hall will be moving out the first week of May to start the renovations of the municipality’s government building.
Municipal Hall is scheduled to be closed on May 4 as offices pack up and move to their temporary office space in Logan Commerce Center at 1700 Markley St. for the next 18 months. The offices of administration, human resources, finance, planning and municipal development, and buildings & code enforcement, and the Norristown Fire Department will be moving to Logan Commerce Center. The Norristown Police Department will remain open in Municipal Hall on May 4 and during the months-long renovation.
Office operations are expected to resume on May 5 from Logan Commerce Center.
The Recreation Department and Public Works Department are housed in separate buildings whose operations will not be disrupted by the renovation.
Renovation of the almost 50-year-old Municipal Hall will cost almost $14 million project and will be the largest capital project the municipal government has ever undertaken. The project will replace the building’s aging infrastructure with new HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems. The overall floor space of the building will increase substantially from 36,000 to 45,000 square feet by downsizing the Council Chambers from a two-story room to one story, and adding office space in the building’s attic.
Council members and municipal leaders broke ground on the renovation in mid-March.
More information about this project and the move to Logan Commerce Center can be found on the Municipal Hall Renovations page at Norristown.org.
