Redmond, WA – The City of Redmond will reopen most city facilities to the community on July 1, after a nearly 16-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially, facilities will open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, including City Hall and the Redmond Community Center at Marymoor Village. City Council meetings will resume in person on July 6 as well as continue online, while boards and commission meetings will continue virtually for the time-being.

“We look forward to welcoming the community back to city facilities and connecting in person once again,” said Mayor Angela Birney. “As we move forward together, we will continue to build on the innovation realized, efficiencies gained, and lessons learned over the past 16 months.”

In preparation to welcome customers and staff back, the City created a Stay Safe Reopening Plan to guide efforts. The 5-stage plan provides a general framework and guidelines for all city services and departments, in accordance with guidance provided by the State of Washington.

City facilities closed to the public in March 2020. The City continued to provide essential services like police, fire, water, sewer, transportation, park maintenance, and development inspections during this extended closure, while a portion of employees telecommuted.
