The City of East Point will host a series of events to celebrate the opening of its new City Hall on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. The day will kick-off with the ribbon cutting ceremony in Downtown East Point at the new City Hall located at 2757 East Point Street at 10:00 a.m. What was once the site of an inactive fire station is now a new 32,130 square foot facility that sits in the heart of downtown East Point at the corner of East Point Street and West Cleveland Avenue.
“The City is leading the way and our state-of-the art facility will be catalytic for equitable economic development in our downtown area,” said Mayor Deana Holiday Ingraham. “We are so proud that our new City Hall will be a community building for all to enjoy and that our staff and city leaders will have a new place to call home.”
The facility will include city offices, a multi-purpose City Council Chamber, a spectacular water feature, and an outdoor amphitheater for hosting events and activities to entertain thousands of people. Guided tours of the new facility will be given on April 30th from 12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Following the tours, Mayor Deana Holiday Ingraham will give the State of the City Address in the new Council Chambers at 6:30 p.m.
Administrative Offices currently on the fourth floor of the Jefferson Station Building will be closed on Friday, May 3, 2019, for “Moving Day” into the new City Hall. Operations in the new facility will begin on Monday, May 6, 2019.
