York Town Hall to get a facelift
Posted on Thursday, 29 July 2010
The York Town Hall is set to enjoy another 100 years as a centrepiece of the town with a Liberal Government to fund the $200,000 restoration ahead of the building’s Centenary in 2011.
The Hon Judi Moylan MP said the York Town Hall is an icon of the Wheatbelt and that these renovations would help ensure York’s place as a prime tourist destination in WA and the Pearce electorate.
“With the addition of climate control and acoustic management, full disability access and an expanded stage and dressing room, the Liberal’s commitment to this project guarantees the York Town Hall’s place in the hearts of York residents and in the imagination of people around WA and Australia,” Mrs Moylan said.
York Shire CEO Ray Hooper said the York Town Hall is on the State and National Heritage Council list and is a vital part of the York landscape.
“It is one of the most photographed buildings in the Wheatbelt and any assistance the Liberals could offer in bringing this project to fruition would be greatly appreciated,” Mr Hooper said.
