Mt nemo plateau could become a Heritage Conservation District. Ramifications for some property owners would be significant.

There they were, all seven of them, smiling and apparently happy to be back at their desks after a rather protracted holiday absence.  Your city council was in session as a Standing Committee

And they were busy little beavers as well.

City council wants to seriously consider turning the Mt.Nemo Plateau into a Heritage Conservation District. Further study was approved at a Standing Committee earlier today.

More detail will follow but the city is taking a hard serious look at creating a Heritage Conservation District on property north of Dundas, west of Walkers Line to the municipal border and north to Britannia Road.

A total of $50,000 has been spent on a report that sets out the cultural heritage of that part of the city and the reasons why this part of the city should be considered as a Heritage Conservation District.

The first thing that happens when this is approved – and it look as if it will be – it got through the Standing Committee unanimously – is the implementation of an Interim Bylaw that would freeze all development while the matter is studied.   That is a huge step.

More on this one later in the week.
