The City of Fargo will host a community open house on Tuesday, December 4 from 4 to 8 p.m. as an official grand opening to its new City Hall in Downtown Fargo. A program, with remarks by Mayor Tim Mahoney, will begin at 5 p.m. in the new City Commission Chambers on the main floor of the facility.

Parking will be available in the two parking lots to the south of the new City Hall, as well as the lot to the north of the Fargo Public Library. Those seeking accessible parking spaces should utilize the parking deck located near the northwest-facing door of the new building, with access off of Third Avenue North. Additionally, visitors are encouraged to utilize LinkFM, which will be in full operation for the duration of the event.
Visitors will have the opportunity to explore all three main floors of the building during the open house, with City staff members giving tours within each department. Refreshments will be offered in the main lobby/atrium.
