HEDC Department Annex At The Hub
On Tuesday, September 22, 2009, Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, members of the Municipal Council and HEDC welcomed three new divisions to the HEDC Department Annex at the Hub, 360 Martin Luther King Drive. An alternative to the main office at 30 Montgomery Street, the annex provides ample on-site parking and is part of the Mayor’s initiative of making government services more accessible to the public.
The three divisions joined a branch of the Office of the Building Code Official, which had been located at the annex since 2007.
The City services now available at the Hub include the HEDC divisions of Housing Code Enforcement, Tenant/Landlord Relations, Community Development and the Office of the Construction Code Official.
All HEDC Department Annex divisions at the Hub are available Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the exception of Community Development, which is available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays only. For more information, call (201) 200-0677.
