Vaughan City Hall Official Opening
Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua and Members of Council were joined by local dignitaries, residents and City staff to celebrate the official opening of Vaughan’s new City Hall. The occasion was marked by a commemorative plaque unveiling, ribbon cutting and cake-cutting ceremony. “Today we celebrate a new beginning for the City of Vaughan with the official opening of our new City Hall,” said Mayor Bevilacqua. “This building is one of the greatest symbols of change for our City and marks the beginning of a new era for Vaughan.” The building has been dedicated to the memory of Lorna Jackson, Vaughan Mayor from 1982 – 2002, in honour of her commitment to public service.
Guests also had the opportunity to tour the new City Hall and learn about the sustainable design and architectural features showcased throughout the building. Mayor Bevilacqua stated, “As the centrepiece of our growing community, it represents transparency and accessibility and sets the standard for sustainability and architectural design.”
Vaughan City Hall will be one of the largest public buildings in Canada to be recognized for its eco-friendly features, including energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, maximum use of natural light, and water-efficient landscaping.
The multi-level 280,000-square-foot building is Phase 1 of a proposed three-phase Civic Centre campus which will include a public resource library, civic square, reflecting pool/skating rink, gardens and parkland.
