7/15/2021 - It's been almost two years since our first post for this project, and now we are so pleased to be able to say that the New Town Hall Construction Project is complete!  The final time-lapse video shows the completion of the parking lot and installation of landscaping.image showing permeable paver parking lot

Want to see it all again? Richmond Time Lape has posted a playlist with all of the videos from start-to-finish, or if you want it all a single video, click here! Better still, stop by and see the completed project in person - Town Hall is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30am to 6:00pm, and the Ashland Farmers market takes place in and around the new parking lot on Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

5/6/2021 - Once demolition was complete, it was time to start the final phase of the project - the parking lot! When compled, this permeable paver lot will not only manage stormwater and provide extra parking for the downtown area, but will also be home to the Ashland Farmers Market, with completion of the lot expected by the end of the month.

2/22/2021 - Demolition of the Old Town Hall took place in January, and it happened fast! It happens even faster in January's time-lapse video, but the clean-up and earth-moving operations are mesmerizing to watch.

1/5/2021 - We have been in the building since November, but here's a throwback time-lapse video, going back to August. You may need to watch it twice, once for the work and once for the clouds!

10/5/2020 - We are in the home stretch!
