Update Regarding the Drill Hall Demolition

Posted On Friday August 23, 2019

The Drill Hall has been an affordable home for many organizations for several decades, making the current situation very unfortunate. 

Public safety is our number one concern, which is why notice has been provided to all tenants to vacate the building (before the winter due to safety concerns of a snow load on the roof). In order to assist with this transition, Council has approved funding to help with the moving costs but they are not in a position to continue to subsidize rent for these organizations.

Understanding the challenge that this situation presents, we will continue to work diligently to help find other options to minimize the impact to the tenants and see if there are any possible ways to relocate the groups into vacant city facilities.
