We invite you to come to an information workshop session on November 23rd 2017 to learn more about the newly launched Downtown Beeton Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Study.

The purpose of the study is to examine the heritage significance of properties in a defined area and determine if designation of a Heritage Conservation District (HCD) within this area is warranted, desirable, and supported by the community.

It is important to note that the HCD study phase does not result in the designation of a Heritage Conservation District.  This study simply evaluates the preliminary area, and if merited, recommends an HCD boundary for Council’s consideration.  Findings and recommendations will be presented back to the public in the spring of 2018.

The study area is defined by Dayfoot Street to the west, Prospect Street to the north, Patterson Street to the east and Main Street to the south. To see a map of the study area, frequently asked questions and other information, please visit the study’s web page at: http://newtecumseth.ca/visitors/heritage/beeton-heritage-conservation-district-study/

The Information Workshop on November 23rd 2017 will discuss and answer key questions:

  1. What is a heritage conservation district?
  2. How is Beeton’s history and unique character expressed today?
  3. Any other questions the public, property owners, or individuals might have about the Beeton Heritage Conservation District Study

Property and business owners in the study area are also invited to come to a focused session on November 30th 2017 at the D.A. Jones Library to discuss any other questions you may have about the HCD Study process.
