Moorpark City Hall and Moorpark City Library Resume In-Person Services on April 1

The City of Moorpark is pleased to announce the re-opening of Moorpark City Hall (799 Moorpark Avenue) and the Moorpark City Library (699 Moorpark Avenue) beginning Thursday, April 1. Social distancing measures will be strictly enforced, and all visitors to City facilities and all in-person attendees at public meetings must wear face coverings at all times. Face coverings will be provided for individuals who do not have one.

City Hall will be open Monday through Friday as follows:

  • 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Walk-Up Service
  • 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.: Appointments Only

The appointments-only hours will allow customers to avoid lines and minimize their exposure to other people.  Appointments are available by calling (805) 517-6200. Visitors taking advantage of walk-up service may be directed to briefly wait outside, as the City adheres to capacity limitations in our public lobby.

City Hall has been open only on an appointment basis since February 11, following a complete closure of City Hall that began on January 11 after several City employees tested positive for COVID-19.

Although in-person visits will now be possible, the City still encourages the public to take advantage of the City’s on-line, phone, and E-mail options for service to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. A list of how to access City services is available on the City’s Virtual Counter at www.moorparkca.gov/VirtualCounter.

In-person meetings of the City Council, Planning Commission, Library Board, Arts Commission, and Parks and Recreation Commission will also resume beginning April 1. Members of the public will be able to attend the meetings and share public comments in person, but the City will also continue to take public comments via Zoom and via telephone during live meetings. The City still encourages the public to take advantage of these options to attend meetings to best minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Consistent with state guidance, the Moorpark City Library will be open beginning April 1 at 50% capacity as follows:

  • Monday – Thursday: 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday – Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Moorpark Active Adult Center will remain closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though its food services remain active. Additionally, the City’s 18-member General Plan Advisory Committee will also continue to meet virtually due to a lack of space to achieve social distancing in a venue that also has live broadcast capabilities.
