Town Staff continues to serve Moraga through shelter-in-place order

Public buildings in Moraga continue to remain closed through May 1 in accordance with the Contra Costa County Health Department's shelter-in-place mandate. Included in the closures are the Town Office at 329 Rheem Blvd., the Hacienda de las Flores at 2100 Donald Dr., and the Corporation Yard at 335 Rheem Blvd. Additional closures include the library, the skate park, play structures, picnic areas and basketball courts in the hopes that this move will prevent a possible transfer of the coronavirus. All of the town's non-essential events and meetings have also been canceled to comply with the order.
Several of the town's departments remain functional throughout the shelter-in-place period in order to continue to serve the residents and businesses of Moraga. The Administration Department's town manager, town clerk, finance, human resources and risk management personnel are available by phone or email.
The Moraga Police and Moraga-Orinda Fire Departments remain on duty. For any police emergencies call dispatch at (925) 284-5010 or 911.
According to Parks and Recreation, trails and open spaces remain available for use by the public as long as social distancing is practiced. Park restrooms will remain open for the use of their hand washing stations. However, the Commons Park parking lots will be closed.
The Planning Department staff is available to answer any general planning or zoning questions via phone or email and are still processing applications that were submitted prior to March 16. New applications must be submitted by mail or a delivery service.
The engineering staff of the Public Works Department will continue to monitor and respond to emails and phone calls. Several construction projects around Moraga are exempt from stoppage and continue as scheduled. These include the Rheem sinkhole abatement, utility or street repairs and the Canyon Road Bridge project.
