Construction update 3/24/2021:

Customer Service and Passports will be closed 4/8/2021-4/12/2021 for the move to our temporary location in the new Government Center West (GCW) building. Be aware that anything dropped in the drop box* will not be processed until we’re back in the office starting Tuesday 4/13. We will make every effort to complete and return your work as quickly as possible.

(*note – the drop box will be located in the circular driveway off of Atwood St beginning 3/29/21.)

Parking new

Upon reopen, we will be located on the first floor of GCW, not far from where we have been in the past. Entrance to the building will continue to be by appointment only – when you arrive for your appointment, please utilize the street parking on 4th Ave.

Thank you for your patience!
