Notice of intention to pass a bylaw to designate The Meisel House at 218 Albert St. to be of cultural heritage value and interest pursuant to the provisions of the Ontario Heritage Act (R.S.O. 1990, Chapter 0.18)
Take Notice that the council of The Corporation of the City of Kingston intends to pass a bylaw under Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter 0.18, to designate the following lands to be of cultural heritage value and interest:
218 Albert St. (Part Lots 917 to 918, Plan A12 as in FR422421, City of Kingston, County of Frontenac), known as the Dr. John Meisel House.
The property, being called the Meisel House, includes a good example of a mid-19th century Georgian-influenced frame house, including its symmetrical front façade with hipped roof and projecting bay window with unusual "eared" surrounds. This two-storey dwelling, built c. 1877, has direct association with former owners Drs. Etherington, Reed and Meisel, all remarkable members of the Queen's University faculty and prominent figures in the community. Dr. John Meisel was made a Companion of the Order of Canada and is considered one of Canada's eminent political scientists. The Meisel House contributes to the heritage character of Albert Street and is one of the first houses constructed on this block.
Additional information, including a full description of the reasons for designation is available upon request from Ryan Leary, senior heritage planner, planning, building & licensing services at 613-546-4291, ext. 3233, or at firstname.lastname@example.org during regular business hours.
Any notice of objection, setting out the reason for objection and all relevant facts, must be served upon the city clerk within 30 days of the first publication of this notice.
