A grand opening will be scheduled for the spring once the entire site is finished, while city officials are considering a “soft” opening in November once the parking lot can accommodate more people.

While the city previously thought it would have to lay-off workers, now that the shutdown is in effect, all workers are still intact.
While the City of Richfield anticipated having to lay-off up to 10 city staff members in the event of a shutdown, now that the shutdown is official, the city has not furloughed any workers, according to Pam Dymtrenko, assistant city manager. City Manager Steve Devich recently released a Richfield City Council memorandum that detailed local impacts of a state shutdown, stating that workers would be laid off. Fortunately, this has not needed to happen. Dmytrenko said the city plans to continue with its current staffing regiment. For workers areas such as motor vehicle licensing, which is currently open despite the shutdown, they may be sent home early if business is slow on any particular day.
