    Open House InvitationDon’t miss the opportunity to see Pima County’s new Public Service Center and meet some of the elected officials who have offices there during the Jan. 9 open house event.

    The event starts at 10 a.m. and continues until noon at the Public Service Center, 240 N. Stone Ave. Guests can park for free at the Public Service Center Garage, 38 E. Alameda St. 

    During the open house, folks will not only see the services provided at this facility, but also learn about the archaeological challenges faced during the construction stages. In addition, they will have an opportunity to visit several offices, including some courtrooms. 

    “This is a great opportunity for our citizens to see the final product of a project that was in the works for over a decade. It will also give them an opportunity to learn all the valuable services provided at this one location,” said Michael Kirk, facilities director.

    Public Service CenterThe Public Service Center provides a centralized location for people to process official paperwork with the county, including passport applications, voter registration, and document recording. It’s also the place to go for judicial services, including traffic court. Before it opened, most of these services were spread out among several downtown offices, including the old historic courthouse where a majority resided.

    The 272,000-square foot building stands seven stories tall and has two stories below ground level with an adjacent parking structure, allowing for easier public access. On the inside, this building is also equipped with the latest audio and visual technology, modern security features, and easy navigation for all members of the public.

    The Public Service Center first opened to the public on Feb. 2, when the Justice Court relocated its offices there. Since then several other county offices have moved in, including the county treasurer, constable, recorder, assessor and the superior court clerk.
