New town hall to open for business soon

Plymouth’s new town hall will soon be opening for business.

Through a just completed $40 million project, the town renovated and constructed a 60,000-square-foot addition to the 1820 Courthouse building at 26 Court St. to convert it into the new town hall.

The work also involved demolishing the former Plymouth County Commissioners’ building and the old police station.


Officials recently announced that the existing town hall at 11 Lincoln St. will be closed on Friday, Oct. 27, and Monday, Oct. 30, to allow municipal offices to be relocated. The new town hall will then be open to the public on Oct. 31 at 7:30 a.m.

The existing town hall at that point will be closed permanently, except for prearranged special events.

Hours at the new town hall on Court Street will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Tuesdays, 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; and Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to noon.

Two-hour free parking will be available during Town Hall business hours on portions of Russell Street and South Russell Street, as well as in the public lot off the westerly end of South Russell Street, where marked.

Handicapped and 15-minute parking will be available in the parking lot immediately adjacent to the main entrance to the town hall.
