Streetsville Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Feasibility Study and Plan
Streetsville was developed by Euro-Canadians as a 19th-century settlement based on industry and water power made available by the Credit River. Today, the community includes a concentration of properties, which have been identified as being of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest. The community provides a sense of place and scenic quality often referred to as ‘The Village in the City’.
The City is engaging the community to determine whether Streetsville meets the legislated criteria for consideration as a potential Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. The study will be carried out in two phases. The first phase will determine whether or not the area meets the criteria as an HCD. If initiated, the second phase would include drafting an HCD Plan which provides policies and guidelines to manage change within the proposed HCD boundary.
MHBC; with +VG, Archeoworks, and Wendy Shearer Landscape Architect; is conducting the study, which commenced in March 2023.
