The Downriver Community Workspace opened this week inside of Gibraltar City Hall.

The workspace allows residents in Downriver the ability to receive help with state issues in a face-to-face format.

It’s also the first community space opened by state lawmakers in Downriver in over a decade.

The workspace was spearheaded by State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown) and State Sen. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Camilleri and Chang say they hope the new workspace will serve to make state government more accessible to Downriver residents.

“As a state representative, the best part of my job is being out in the community with the people I have the honor of representing,” said Camilleri. “I want to ensure that all Downriver residents have a reliable place they can go to get assistance and discuss the most important issues facing their families. Opening a community workspace has been something we’ve been working on for a long time, and we’re really excited by the opportunities it will provide.”

Over 30 residents attended the open house for the new workspace on Wednesday. Coffee, pie and other refreshments from local businesses were served during the event.

Staff will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during normal business hours at the city hall.

Gibraltar City Hall is located at 29450 Munro Street.

Residents with questions, or those looking for more information about the new workspace, are encouraged to reach out to Camilleri by phone at (517) 373-0555 or by email at, or Chang by phone at (517) 373-7346 or by email at
