Huntington Beach Civic Center City Hall


Huntington Beach Civic Center and City Hall Complex


Huntington Beach City Hall is located in sort of a campus atmosphere. The Civic Center complex includes three separate building facilities surrounded by grass lawns, flowering trees, a Japanese garden with water fountain, a memorial rose garden, and a significant set of tile murals with birds and ecology themes.


Huntington Beach Police headquarters are located in one building that includes a jail. Another building contains the City Council facilities where meetings are held by the mayor, city council members and city government staff such as the City Administrator, City Attorney, City Public Information Officer and City Clerk (to name a few), and the public. At these public meetings, you can go and speak (usually 3 minutes) on subjects on the council agenda.


Then there's the building you are looking at in the photo above. This is the headquarters of city government. It contains four floors of administrative offices for city operations.  On the basement floor is a new cafe-style restaurant the public can dine in. Also available at City Hall is free Internet wi-fi. And on the second floor, you'll find the passport services at the Office of the City Clerk. Special events where you can meet many of the city employees include Customer Appreciation Day.


While many of the city's employees work in this building on Main and Yorktown streets, there are other city facilities and divisions, such as Marine Safety, which is home to the HB Lifeguards.


Set on a prominent corner of Main Street (2000 Main), across the street from the Civic Center you can see the historic Huntington Beach High School buildings and also the Seacliff Shopping Center where you'll often find city employees out for lunch, enjoying a bite of food at one of the many restaurants.
