Wenatchee plans to move into its new City Hall on Nov. 26


Moving day has been scheduled for Nov. 26, as the city of Wenatchee packs up City Hall and moves about a half block away into the former federal building.

Steve King, the city’s economic development director, said most city operations will be upstairs in the new city hall until a remodel of the ground floor entrance area, offices and council chambers is completed, probably in 2020.

The words Federal Building and Post Office on the building will be replaced with Wenatchee City Hall, though the city’s original white painting is still being painted black.

Also by 2020, the Social Security Administration is expected to move its offices from the federal building to the vacated city hall building. The last council meeting in the current city hall will be Dec. 6.

LocalTel purchased the federal building in a government auction and later sold part of it to the city for the new City Hall.
