La Mirada City Hall, Community Sheriff’s Station, and Public Works Offices to Re-Open June 8


The City of La Mirada continues to monitor information related to COVID-19, as well as guidance by the State of California and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.  As new Public Health Orders continue to be issued allowing for the return of various activities, the City is gradually returning some programs and services to a more normal status.

City Hall, Community Sheriff’s Station and Public Works Offices will re-open for public access on Monday, June 8. The Activity Center, Community Gymnasium, Resource Center, Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center, and La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts remain temporarily closed. City parks are open to the public; however, playgrounds are closed pursuant to the health orders.

The City of La Mirada will require visitors to City facilities to follow the COVID-19 safety guidelines outlined by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.  These include wearing a cloth face covering and practicing social distancing (6-foot separation between individuals).  Additionally, the City has taken the following actions:

  • Placed floor markings in facilities to help indicate the 6-foot social distance requirement.
  • Installed temporary partitions at public counters and placed hand sanitizer in easily accessible areas.
  • Posted signage with the COVID-19 infection control requirements.
  • Require that anyone who is sick with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19 refrain from entering City facilities.

“We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times,” says City Manager Jeff Boynton. “The City will open additional facilities to the public once the State and County Department of Public Health issue revised orders allowing us to safely do so.”

As a reminder, many City services can be accessed through the City’s website, My La Mirada smartphone app, or by calling City Hall.  Project development reviews and building permit applications will only be processed electronically and paper copies of plans and permits will not be accepted.  Access to a computer will be provided at City Hall for those requiring electronic access to development forms and permits.
