City Council Evening Meetings

A new facility for Arlington City Council, Planning and Zoning and other public meetings, as well as library programming, is expected to open adjacent to Arlington City Hall in 2018. The current City Council Chamber will be demolished the summer.

Residents who plan to attend the Tuesday, June 7 Arlington City Council evening meeting should come to the City Council Briefing Room on the third floor of Arlington City Hall.

The final City Council evening meeting in the City Council Chamber was held on May 24. The 35-year-old Chamber will be demolished this summer as part of the new $30 million George W. Hawkes Central Library construction project.

In addition to an 80,000-square-foot library, which will be located north of City Hall, the City is building a 6,500-square-foot facility for City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission meetings, library programming and other public meeting space needs. The new meeting space facility will better meet the City 's accessibility and technology needs. Arlington City Hall was built in 1980.

Until the new facility opens, all future Arlington City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission evening meetings will be held in the City Council Briefing Room on the 3rd Floor of Arlington City Hall, located at 101 W. Abram St.

Residents can watch Arlington City Council meetings on AT&T U-verse Channel 99, Time Warner Cable Channel 16 or 15.1 digital or through internet live-streaming. For more information, visit
