Staff have notified my office that the final Landscaping and Waterproofing construction project at Waterdown Memorial Hall is moving forward after a gas line was ruptured on site as well as a rainy summer. Working with Union Gas and the Ministry of Labour, the contractors continue to pour concrete walls and work on planter beds. The flag pole will be installed in association with the wall construction.
Initial sod and planting will take place between Memorial Hall and the Today’s Family building at 315 Dundas St E over the next few weeks, with the remainder of the planting materials in front of the Memorial Hall to be installed after walls are in place, weather permitting.
This final phase includes a fresh coat of paint for the front doors, new entry stairs, retaining walls, seating benches, new planting beds and the re-installation of historic World War 1 plaques, Commemorative bell and fountain. The new landscaping design in the front yard includes lighting, grading, drainage.
Waterdown Memorial Hall was built in honour of our local residents who lost their lives servicing Canada in WW1. This project was part of the original Waterdown Memorial Hall Restoration project developed and approved by local representatives of Waterdown Legion, Flamborough Archives, Waterdown BIA, Councillor Partridge, City of Hamilton Staff and residents.
