COVID-19: City's Services Update

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 or by calling the City of Arvada at 720-898-7000 during business hours. 

Please note: This information applies to City buildings, not to businesses in Arvada.

As the City team continues to monitor the COVID-19, decisions will be made to help limit the spread of the disease. Updates will be provided as they becomes available. Check back often.
