In the 1950s, a series of improvements in its urban facilities were carried out in Arafo, such as the constructions of the Obra Social del Movimiento building, the installation of the drinking water service, paving the streets, expansion and improvement of the Plaza José Antonio, the completion of the building for schools and the Town Hall and the construction of a group of limited-income housing in the Carmen neighbourhood. 

The seat of the town council had been itinerant, once the parish church or the home of the mayor on duty, later they would be houses generally rented to influential people. In 1935 a motion by Mayor Luis Marrero was approved for the construction of new buildings for the Town Hall, Court and Civil Guard barracks, however the Civil War paralyzed the project.

The current headquarters of the consistory, was begun during the decade of the 1930s, at first to be occupied by the primary schools. In 1943, the council moved to a room on the first floor. The second was concluded at the end of the fifties. The progressive increase in the town hall offices led to it being used entirely as Town Hall.

Arafo has separate social media accounts including a dedicated Twitter account for Prensa (Press) and numerous Facebook pages for different departments or subjects.
