As part of its continued response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the City of Arvada has extended the closure of most City facilities to the public through May 30, 2020. The extension provides additional time for the City team to evaluate facilities and services to help ensure that physical distancing and other safety measures are in place to serve residents in-person and support onsite members of the City team. The Municipal Court and the PD substations are open with social distancing and other safety measures in place. For more information on the City's Recovery Plans, visit arvada.org/COVID-Recovery. Please note: This facilities closure extension does not apply 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.
