Conceptual Design of New City Hall. Dinuba’s current City Hall facility is located at 405 E. El Monte Way. This site comes with a variety of challenges for staff, and residents, and is not adequately sized to accommodate future growth. It is the goal of the community to relocate City Hall to the Downtown.
