City staff intend to take the issue to city council for final approval of the Brooklyn and College Hill Heritage Conservation District in September.

Meeting answers heritage district questions

People living within and near the proposed Brooklyn and College Hill Heritage Conservation District can find out how it would work and provide their comments at a community meeting on Tuesday.
The 6:30-8:30 p.m. June 24 meeting hosted by the city’s planning department is in city hall’s Meeting Room C.
“Learn what the designation of a heritage district means for you and how the heritage conservation district plan provides guidance to property owners and tenants in and around a district who wish to make alterations or additions to their properties,” a news release said. “This is your opportunity to provide comments and have your questions answered regarding the heritage conservation district designation and the heritage permit process.”
It said people can learn more about:
• the heritage permit process – when and how it applies
• what is exempt from heritage permit approval
• how the plan and guidelines apply to heritage and non-heritage properties within the district
• how the plan and guidelines apply to properties adjacent to the district.
The proposed district includes the area where the Speed and Eramosa rivers converge and extends south down Gordon Street to near College Avenue. It would be Guelph’s first heritage conservation district.
The draft plan and guidelines for the district aim to protect the heritage character not only of the district’s residential areas, but also the Speed and Eramosa riverscapes and associated open space. Also covered is the Gordon Street corridor and buildings fronting onto Gordon between the downtown and the U of G.
