Crescentwood - Enderton Park Heritage Conservation District Nomination

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Introduction

The Crescentwood-Enderton Park neighbourhood has a unique history and an outstanding collection of heritage homes and buildings, many of which were built between 1900 and 1914. For years, area residents have been advocating for heritage conservation district (HCD) status. HCDs conserve areas of special architectural and historical significance and manage future changes within the district boundaries.


Background

There are three steps in the process of establishing a heritage conservation district:

  • Official nomination (this occurred on June 6, 2019)
  • Development of an HCD study.
  • Development of an HCD plan, which could lead to official designation. This is the stage we are at right now.

Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, it is expected that all consultation will take place online. Alternate formats will be provided upon request.

    We are continuing our work on the HCD study. Once an area is nominated, an HCD study must be prepared and submitted to demonstrate how the proposed district is architecturally and historically significant and warrants designation. Property owners attended a community meeting on February 26, 2020, and we are building on this meeting through a virtual workshop, accessible through this site.

    Property owners will be notified when the HCD study is ready to be reviewed by decision makers, at which point property owners will be able to submit a response in writing or register as a delegation at the public meeting that has the Crescentwood HCD study as an agenda item.
