As part of a plan to reorganize Watertown’s municipal departments, the Health Department will be moving out of City Hall.
The Health Department will be one of the departments moving south of the Charles River to the Parker Annex building, formerly the Parker School. The City of Watertown provided the following announcement:
The Watertown Health Department is moving on February 1, 2024 to the Parker Annex at 124 Watertown Street, 3G, Watertown, MA 02472. They will still have the same phone number of 617-972-6446, all of the same contact information, and the same webpage.
See the google map and get directions.
In November, City Manager George Proakis told the City Council about the plans for departments moving within City Hall and over to the newly purchased building. Other City departments going into the Parker Annex include Information Technology (IT), and Community Development and Planning (including planning, zoning, and code enforcement). The City also has a plan to move the Watertown Food Pantry to the Parker Building.
The Parker Annex was purchased by the City last year, after the City Council approved funds in December 2022.
