We Are Moving 

Municipal Building Renovation
All West Chester Municipal Government Services will be moving out of Borough Hall on December 21, 2017 to allow for renovations of our building. This also includes the meeting spaces for public meetings. All Borough services will be moving to “The Spellman Building” located at 829 Paoli Pike, West Chester PA 19380 while these renovations are being performed. 

The renovation project is anticipated to last approximately 10 months. After completion, all departments will be relocating back to 401 East Gay Street. Additional information will be posted on this site as it becomes available.

We have set up a special “Notify Me” service for anyone who would like to receive updates regarding this project. Updates and additional information will also be posted at”
