Haldimand County is pleased to invite the community to tour behind the scenes of the Haldimand County Administration Building with an open house event on Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The new administration building has been instrumental in bringing us together as staff, and enhancing our customer service through a centralized model,” said Chief Administrative Officer, Craig Manley. “With the building officially opening right as the pandemic hit, we weren’t able to share it with the community the way we’d planned. And while some residents may have already visited for County business, I’m pleased that we now have the opportunity provide the community with this in-depth look.”
The open house will include guided tours, informational displays, a look at the County’s historical artifacts/collection, and light refreshments. Attendees will have the opportunity to view staff and council areas as well as learn about the many cultural and heritage aspects included in the building’s design. The Port Maitland ‘On The Grand’ Historical Association will also be onsite to unveil a portrait of Frederick Haldimand that will be hung in the lobby.
The Haldimand County Administration Building officially opened to the public in February 2020. The goal of the new building was to provide a centralized customer service model that would enhance customer experience, maximize administrative/operational efficiencies, improve accessibility, and ensure long-term cost effectiveness.
