“TD Bank Group’s generosity made this donation possible. Together with the City of Hamilton, HPL will work over the next few months to prepare a concrete plan to make this project a success,” says HPL’s Board Chair Nick van Velzen. “After renovations, the residents of Carlisle will enjoy a vibrant community space that will serve for generations to come.”
The TD Canada Trust automated bank machine will remain on site at the relocated Carlisle Branch. The TD Bank Group building was built in 1974. The building and property donation to HPL has been finalized. The City of Hamilton and HPL have conducted a feasibility study and will engage with a design consultant later this year. The project’s preliminary budget is $1.75M.
