About the Project

The Hammond Community Centre Renovation project will provide exterior and interior upgrades to the Centre that was approved by Council as part of the Parks, Recreation & Culture (PRC) Infrastructure enhancements for the community. The Hammond renovation is a place to add public art to highlight the heritage value and character-defining elements as per the Hammond Area Plan and build a greater sense of place using the exterior metal shingles/tiles approved for the building.
