Local News in Brief : Agoura City Hall Leaves Storefront
Giving up a cramped shopping center storefront that has served as Agoura Hills’ City Hall since its 1982 incorporation, city officials moved their headquarters Monday to a new office building.
Officials said they expect the headquarters to remain in the leased space at 30101 Agoura Road for the next five years. The city employs 11 people.
The new City Hall will house a municipal art gallery besides offices and chambers for the City Council. With 6,000 square feet, it is more than twice as large as the former offices at Reyes Adobe Plaza.
City Manager Michael Huse said officials decided against expanding the former site because a shopping center was not a “proper setting” for a city hall.
The Agoura Hills move follows by three months the relocation of the neighboring Westlake Village City Hall from a shopping center storefront to an office building. The four-member Westlake Village city staff also doubled the size of its headquarters and now rents 3,900 square feet.
