Crescentwood Heritage Conservation District Nomination

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.

To adapt to current circumstances, we have moved consultations online and invite stakeholders to participate in a virtual workshop. Participate in the workshop and submit feedback below.


Background

Through this workshop, we are covering topics that must, under HCD By-law 87/2018, be included in any HCD study. The sections of this workshop include:

Go through each section and complete each activity to have your say. Your responses to the questions will help us to better understand the area and complete the HCD study.

Note: We are primarily seeking input from property owners, as designation will have the greatest impact on this group. However, we recognize that renters and people who do not live in the area may also have important feedback to share, so those who do not own property in this area may also participate in this workshop.

For more information about the neighbourhood, please visit the Proposed boundaries section of the virtual workshop.

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.
