Groundbreaking Ceremony for Baie-D'Urfé Town Hall

Mayor Heidi Ektvedt and the members of the municipal council officially broke ground on Thursday to mark the beginning of the expansion and restoration of Baie-D'Urfé Town Hall.

The $6.7M investment is made possible by a $4.485M grant from the government of Québec, the balance being funded by the Town's affected surplus.

Work is now underway and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

  • It includes reconfiguring the space,

  • restoration of historical works,

  • installation of an elevator,

  • reinforcement of the foundations,

  • replacement and restoration of windows,

  • and insulation of the building.

The ancestral section will be returned to its original purpose, being accessible to the public for council meetings, while the administrative functions that were carried out in this section will be moved to other parts of the annexed building.

"I'm thrilled that we will be returning the town hall back to its original purpose while modifying elements to modern day standards. Having seen several renderings over the years this final version is modest and reflective of a future rich in history. We are truly fortunate to have one of the oldest town hall buildings that continue to serve its purpose since 1912." Heidi Ektvedt, Mayor of Baie-D'Urfé
