MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The City of Martinsburg’s operations will be relocating, temporarily.

The update was announced in a press release from the city Tuesday.

“In preparation for the complete renovation of City Hall on N. Queen Street, City Hall operations will be temporarily moving to 206-208 Viking Way until 2024,” according to the announcent.

City Hall will be closed to walk-in customers from Friday, June 3 through Friday, June 10 to give employees time to “unpack boxes, receive training and find the water cooler.”

City Hall will resume normal walk-in operations on Monday, June 13 at Viking Way.

Online services will continue to be available during our move. City business can also be conducted by phone, email and at

City Council meetings and other board and commission meetings will be held through the summer at our current N. Queen Street location, but will move to George Karos Community Room in the Martinsburg Police Department during renovations.

The renovation of City Hall on N. Queen will ensure the center of City government is prepared for the next generation and demonstrates the City’s continuing commitment to revitalizing historic downtown. Since the Police Department and Municipal Court’s move in 2020, the first floor of Martinsburg City Hall has been vacant. To ensure that Martinsburg can continue to provide effective services, City Hall will undergo a complete renovation which will move constituent services to the first floor, replace all the essential mechanical systems of the structure which haven’t been replaced since the building was originally constructed in 1986 and provide adequate and modern staff working space for the 21st century.
