Community invited to information meeting for Heritage Conservation Districts

Filed under: , ,
April 4, 2016 - The City’s Strategic Plan notes that heritage assets are an important part of a culturally vibrant community and an exceptional quality of life. Heritage conservation districts are special areas with cultural heritage value that add to a sense of place that extends beyond individual buildings and structures. They can include residential, commercial or industrial areas as well as landscapes or entire villages.

The City has engaged Bray Heritage Consultants to undertake Heritage Conservation District Studies for downtown Lindsay and the Oak Street neighbourhood in Fenelon Falls.

There is growing interest and recognition of the value of heritage conservation districts as a way to ensure that our most cherished historic areas are maintained for future generations and that future development does not compromise the characteristics and features that are important to our communities.

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, Bray Heritage Consultants will hold a community information meeting to talk about Heritage Conservation Districts, and to answer any questions the public may have about the two district studies currently underway. The meeting will take place from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the meeting room at Community Care Village Housing, 65 Melbourne St. W., Lindsay.
