The West Virginia’s DNR Headquarters will be relocating to South Charleston in the weeks to come. The move is necessitated by planned renovations to the agency’s current home in the top three floors of Building 3 at the Capitol Complex in Charleston.
All of building three’s offices are being moved out to allow for the renovation of the 60-year old structure.
The temporary headquarters will be behind the South Charleston Public Library. The address 342 Fourth Avenue, South Charleston, WV 25303. DNR administrators advise that all telephone numbers fax numbers, and e-mail addresses will be unchanged during the period of upheaval.
“During this transition, please continue to call or e-mail DNR as normal, and we will respond as quickly as we can, but we do ask for your understanding as the move is completed,” said DNR Director Frank Jezioro.
Jezioro said the new location will be convenient and the agency’s in-person services will be easily available to the public.
The move includes all of the DNR’s offices including the Director, Administration, Law Enforcement, Parks and Recreation, Wildlife Section, and the Office of Land and Streams. The DNR District 5 Law Enforcement Staff will also relocate to the new location from their present home in Nitro.
The move began June 10th and is expected to be complete by June 15th.
