King City – The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will officially dedicate its brand new office serving King City and surrounding communities during an 8 a.m. grand opening ceremony on September 24, 2007.

"This is a growing community and we are pleased to open a more modern and larger facility for our customers in King City," said DMV Director George Valverde.

The 4,950 square-foot office – located at 101 East San Antonio – is nearly four times the size of its North Second Street predecessor, which has been open since 1969. The new office will service approximately 40,000 customers annually with seven DMV employees. The office will not only have more office space, but will also have ample parking, a carport and a motorcycle testing area.

With energy efficiency as a priority, DMV is pursuing a LEED certification on this new facility. The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance, energy-efficient buildings. It was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, a 10,000-member non-profit trade organization, which has developed the LEED system to promote a whole-building approach to sustainability.
