LaSalle Municipal Facilities ProjectA $32.5 million project, the LaSalle Municipal Facilities Project includes a Culture, Recreation, & Environmental Services building, a new Fire Hall, a new Police Services Building, a new EMS station, as well as a Civic Complex which encompasses a new town hall, library, and seniors centre.
The project was a unique undertaking, especially for the small municipality, who had found that their existing buildings were overcrowded and not energy-efficient. The demolition, redesign, and rebuild of these structures resulted in more efficient and effective municipal operations, and have allowed the township to offer enhanced services to its residents.
The Civic Complex, is a 46,000 sq. ft. building that was built where the previous Municipal Centre was erected and includes a 11,000 sq. ft. library, and a 3,000 sq. ft. seniors centre, and features a 6,000 sq. ft. four-sided bio-filter living wall with glass atrium on the second floor. Council chambers and municipal offices are also included in this complex.
The nearby Fire Department is a 19,500 sq. ft. facility, and includes 2,100 sq. ft. of additional space for local EMS services. Immediately East of the Fire Hall is the new LaSalle Police Station, which, at 21,500 sq. ft., is almost, double the size of the former facility.
