Public invited to meeting on new Village of Barriefield Heritage Conservation District Plan

April 20, 2016 –

Heritage Kingston will host a public meeting about the new Village of Barriefield Heritage Conservation District (HCD) Plan at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 4 in Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.

The Village of Barriefield in Kingston's east-end was designated as a Heritage Conservation District in 1979. The current Barriefield HCD Plan is being replaced with a new plan to reflect legislative requirements and a number of changes that have taken place within the district.

Prepared by the City and MHBC Planning, the fourth draft of the new Village of Barriefield HCD Plan is now available for review on the City's website (search "Barriefield" at www.CityofKingston.ca). Comments on the draft will be accepted prior to the meeting by mail, fax or email to Ryan Leary, senior planner (rleary@cityofkingston.ca). Verbal and written comments may be presented at the public meeting, which is being hosted by Heritage Kingston, formerly the municipal heritage committee.

The new Village of Barriefield Heritage Conservation District Plan outlines what makes Barriefield a special and culturally-valued place – and offers details on how to properly conserve that value. The new plan provides policies, guidelines and procedures for achieving its objectives, and describes alterations that will not require a heritage permit.
