The building, which is home to many organization meetings, including American Legion Post 267, is the original civic center of the city of La Habra.  According to many city staff, it has been in need of updating.
“Our Veteran’s Hall was really looking tired and was poorly maintained over the years,” said La Habra Mayor Jim Gomez. “The council decided to spend the money to restore the building to its original condition…It is now a place our community can be proud of.”
The cost of the four-month renovation was approximately $235,000. According to Assistant City Manager Rob Ferrier, a portion of that money came from the developer City Ventures,and part of the overall larger Civic Center improvement project, which includes five city buildings and the relocation of city hall.
