Public invited to Barriefield Heritage Conservation District Plan Review and Update Open House
May 22, 2014 -
The City invites residents to an upcoming open house on the Barriefield Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Plan review and update. The open house publicly launches a review of the Plan, which was last updated in 1992.
The open house is set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27 at 414 Regent St. in Barriefield Village (Frontenac County School Museum).
"We look forward to working with the community as we review and update the HCD Plan to conserve the Village of Barriefield's special heritage character. This is the first in a series of open houses that will be offered at significant stages in the process," says Shirley Bailey, Manager of Heritage and Urban Design.
Originally approved by the former Pittsburgh Township in 1979, the Village of Barriefield was one of the first Heritage Conservation Districts in the Province of Ontario.
The City is working with the consulting firm of MHBC Planning to assess how the Barriefield Heritage Conservation District Plan is working and will identify any opportunities to improve on the District Plan.
MHBC will also prepare an update to the District Plan following this review and input from the public, stakeholders and City Council.
Under the Ontario Heritage Act, the Heritage Conservation District designation allows Council to manage and guide change in the district, through the adoption of a district plan with policies and guidelines that conserve, protect and enhance the district's special character.
