Downtown Beeton

Heritage Conservation District Study

Public Information Session

Wednesday April 25th, 2018

Beeton Memorial Arena

22 Second Street

Beeton, Ontario

6:30 – 8:30pm

We invite you to come to an information session on April 25th, 2018 to learn about the findings and recommendations of the 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.

After an extensive research and public consultation process, our consultant team is ready to share the study’s findings for your final input as part of this phase.

It is important to note that the HCD study phase does not result in the designation of a Heritage Conservation District. This study simply evaluated a preliminary area and has now delineated a potential HCD boundary for Council’s consideration.

If Council decides to proceed to initiate a Heritage Conservation District Plan for the proposed area, policies and guidelines will be developed in close consultation with the community to conserve, protect and enhance the area’s special character. Once the policies and guidelines are prepared, Council may proceed to designate the HCD and adopt the HCD Plan through a by-law.

The study area assessed as part of the study 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 April 25th, 2018 will discuss and address key questions:

What is a Heritage Conservation District?

  1. How is Beeton’s history and unique character expressed today?
  1. What have we heard from the community and property owners about protecting Beeton’s special character?
  1. What area within Downtown Beeton is significant and merits recognition as a Heritage Conservation District?
