The city of Spokane Valley welcomes community members to an open house at the new City Hall this Saturday.
Everyone is invited to help celebrate the historic event, which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 10210 E. Sprague Ave.
The day’s activities begin when Boy Scout Troop 464 raises the flag and Boy Scout Troop 456 leads the Pledge of Allegiance. Mayor Rod Higgins will welcome visitors with comments and acknowledgements just before the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors conduct a ribbon-cutting.
Following the opening ceremony, all present will be invited to be part of a community portrait video/photographs to be taken in front of the main entrance to City Hall. Afterward, the building will be open for self-guided tours until 2 p.m.
Throughout the facility, City Council members and city staff members will welcome visitors with displays and information about city programs, projects and services. They will be joined by representatives from a variety of community partners highlighting the services they provide to Spokane Valley community members. Volunteers from the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum will also be on hand to shine a light on the historical photographs and images displayed on the walls inside City Hall.
Outside the building are three sculptures donated by the Spokane Valley Arts Council. Their volunteers will be available to talk about the artwork and the upcoming dedication of those sculptures on Oct. 25.
Also outside will be a hands-on display for kids of all ages to explore, including a Spokane Valley Fire Department fire engine, Spokane Valley police cruiser, city snow plow, garbage trucks and other vehicles that help keep Spokane Valley safe, clean and plowed.
