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

Introduction

The Crescentwood 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)
  • Consideration of the draft HCD study. This is the stage we are at right now.
  • Consideration of a draft HCD plan, which could lead to official designation

On February 26, 2020, property owners in the area met for an initial HCD workshop. You can view the February 26, 2020 presentation here. A follow-up in-person property owner workshop was scheduled for April 4th. This workshop was unfortunately cancelled due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19.

WHAT WE HEARD

  • Discussions about the former Fortune home (393 Wellington Crescent) and the tragic loss of family members with the sinking of the Titanic
  • Identification of several properties with original carriage buildings that are now used as residences or garages

    Peanut Park

    by user20201904, 4 months ago

    The Friends of Peanut Park, a neighbourhood group that has "adopted" Enderton Park from the City of Winnipeg, have gathered some of the old history of the park and area at; http://peanutpark.ca/history/

    We have also recorded our progress in refurbishing the park at: http://peanutpark.ca/accomplishments/

    I notice that the information in "accomplishments" is rather out of date; I will try to update it over the summer, as it is my responsibility to maintain the website.
