Plans for Town Hall area
Planning and Development Head Greg Hofmann is to present a concept plan and development process for the area surrounding Town Hall including the Midstream Building and Perras Place, both of which are scheduled for future demolition.
According to the public agenda document, “a number of issues and factors are, both individually and especially in combination, causing the need to proactively organize and plan the space comprising the area surrounding the Town’s Administration Building.”
The plan addresses:
• The continued growth of the Town and the ever increasing level of engagement/activity associated with that growth in terms of the various services undertaken within the Town Hall Area: local government, library, visitor information, Midstream Society, and so on.
• The increasing frequency of available parking at the rear of the building (as currently provided
for/arranged) being at or near capacity.
• The need to incorporate the approved emergency generator/storage building.
• Assessing the potential future use of the Perras Place component of the Town Hall Area as a commemorative/community open space.
