On September 8, the new Faro Community Services Building officially opened its doors and welcomed Yukoners for a tour of the new space.
The 1,229-square-metre facility was designed to meet the Town of Faro’s unique needs and will house emergency and community services. The new building is also designed to exceed minimum energy efficiency standards by 25 per cent.
The building includes seven vehicle bays, staff offices, shared meeting rooms, parts and tool storage, a morgue and decontamination areas.
The project was built through an investment of more than $8.8 million by the Government of Canada and nearly a $3 million investment by the Government of Yukon.
