Completed in 1988, City Hall was the first phase of the Escondido Civic Center. The building won many prestigious awards, including the Urban Land Institute Award for Excellence in 1989. City Hall represents innovative, functional, state-of-the-art, cost-effective solutions to many specific City needs. City Hall was designed with an anticipation of the future, as well as an appreciation of the past, and is a superb example of how architecture can reflect the heart of the community and inspire civic pride.

City Hall provides one-stop shopping for most municipal services. All of the high public use departments are located along a single service counter on the ground floor for greater public convenience. This arrangement allows people to conduct their business quickly, reduces confusion in trying to find departments, and enables departments to coordinate activities.

For detailed information on the Escondido Civic Center project, see The Urban Land Institute's Project Reference File and the Escondido Civic Center Commemorative Brochure.
