Portland Hall and Library

Portland Hall and Library

The Township is engaging a local architectural firm, Altered Roots, to consult and design a new combined Portland Community Hall and Library building that is to be located at 24 Water Street, Portland, the same property where the former Portland Community Hall was located.

An initial concept plan for the facility is in development, based on initial direction and parameters as set by Council on August 1, 2023. Altered Roots and the Township will be hosting a public open house to gain community and stakeholder feedback on this concept plan.


Initial direction was provided by Council to the Architect to design a Hall and Library Building that included the following:

  • Project Budget of $3,000,000
  • Approximate 1500ft2 library
  • Hall size to be determined, but to accommodate at least a 125 person occupancy
  • Building to be oriented towards Water Street
  • Outdoor sitting area
  • Shared spaces with Library (kitchen, washrooms, etc.)
  • 300 ft2 of storage incorporated in each space
  • Exterior of the building to be consistent with the surrounding area with cost effective, durable and low maintenance materials.
