After several annexations took place in the mid-1990s, staff outgrew the original City Hall and moved to an Interim City Hall, housed in an old school located in the Horizon View neighborhood. The space was larger, but the new location was difficult to get to and was only a temporary solution.
In 2000, the City purchased a site in the north east corner of the Town Center for a new City Hall. The site, formerly a restaurant, was located in the center of Lake Forest Park's business district, easily accessible by public transportation.
March 23, 2002 was the official dedication of the newest City Hall. Mayor David R. Hutchinson invited the students of Brookside Elementary School to prepare a time capsule. The Lake Forest Park proclamation for the event stated that the capsule should be opened after 25 years, on March 23, 2027.
