As the closure of City facilities is set to expire on May 31, the City team is following a phased approach to the reopening of facilities to allow all team members to be trained in safety requirements and to ensure all necessary materials and equipment to adjust facilities to accommodate physical distancing can be acquired and applied. Currently, Municipal Courts and PD Community Stations have reopened. The next phase of reopening, which will begin between June 1 - 15, is the re-establishing of in-person engagement with public meetings, including the ability to provide in-person comments and testimony during City Council meetings and the ability to attend select neighborhood and community open houses. During the phased reopening, the City will continue to provide most services remotely. City services updates are provided at arvada.org/city-services-
Before visiting a City facility, be sure to call ahead (720-898-7000 during business hours) to verify a facility or service is available.

The Arvada City Council is composed of seven directly elected citizens.
- The Mayor represents the entire City of Arvada, presides over City Council Meetings, and performs official duties.
- There are two Councilmembers At-Large, who represent the entire City of Arvada.
- There are four District Councilmembers, each residing within and representing the citizens of their specific District as indicated on the City Council District Map.
The Mayor and City Councilmembers are elected to four-year terms. Elections are held in November of odd-numbered years (2019, 2021, etc). Terms are staggered so that the seats for District #1, District #3 and one At-Large seat are elected in one election cycle; and District #2, District #4, the Mayor's seat and one At-Large seat are elected in the next election cycle. Councilmembers are limited to three (3) four-year terms for a specific seat. An individual elected to represent a specific district can serve in that capacity for three terms but then has the option of running for an At-Large seat and serving an additional three terms.
