Starting this Friday, September 23, the Development Center counter at City Hall is updating its schedule for the fall and will now be closed on Monday and Friday each week. We are currently experiencing low staffing levels and plan for this change to be temporary. Condensing our hours to three days a week will allow for hiring, onboarding, and training of new staff. The counter will be open for in-person service on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. Service on Mondays and Fridays will be available only by phone at 541‐726‐3753. You can also visit the Resource Center anytime online for forms and more information at https://springfield-or.gov/.../development-and-public.../
