Port Melbourne Town Hall improvements

Money was allocated in Council's 2011/12 budget to refresh the upstairs hall of the Port Melbourne Town Hall and make it more useable. The improvements include replacing the ceiling tiles and at the same time doing an environmental retrofit, painting the walls, adding new stage curtains, removing the carpet and varnishing the floor, and designing and installing a new audio-visual system. Taking this photo, I was struck anew at the two very different faces of our Town Hall - to Spring St and Bay St. The layered history of the Town Hall is described in the Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society booklet available from the Assist counter at the Town Hall.

There are a lot of people interested in building their own homes. However, usually they are not aware of all the planning projects they have to make to get the home they have been dreaming about. Fortunately, there are a lot of different options that will provide with a chance to get a house and service you have been dreaming about. This is very nice post. Thanks.
