Front Lobby of PD Closed for Power Shutdown

The City of San Rafael is installing new electrical panels and will be adding some plug-in spaces for electrical vehicles in the upper lot at City Hall located at 1400 Fifth Avenue, San Rafael.

Part of the construction will be doing a switchover from the old panels to the new ones.  The current panels that are being replaced are located in the back parking lot of the police department.  Due to this construction, we will be shutting down the power to the entire city hall, including all back up power.  This shut down will begin at 6:00 pm on Friday, May 3rd.  If all goes as planned, the power will be turned back on by 6:00 am on Monday, May 6th. 


We will be doing a test run on shutting down the power.  This will occur at 6:00 am on Saturday, April 13th and should last for a few hours.  Due to the test run, the front lobby of the police department will be closed on Saturday, April 13th and again will be closed for the actual switchover on Saturday, May 6th and Sunday May 7th.


A generator will be used to ensure all phone lines (Emergency and non-emergency) will be functioning during the shutdown.  There will be no disruption to public safety operations in the City of San Rafael during this time. 


If you have any questions, please contact 415-485-3000.
