Heritage Register Review

It is a primary goal of the Town’s Official Plan to conserve and enhance East Gwillimbury’s rich cultural heritage and history. The built heritage of East Gwillimbury provides both community and economic benefits, by promoting community identity and distinction, and enhancing local tourism and attraction. Reviewing the Town’s existing Heritage Register will allow the Town to decide which properties should remain on the Heritage Register for continued protection and enjoyment.

Scope of Project

The Town has retained Archaeological Services Inc.(ASI) to help complete this project. To determine which of the over 400 properties currently on the Heritage Register have merit for continued inclusion on the Heritage Register, ASI will be reviewing background property information and completing field surveys of properties from the municipal right of way. The evaluation of these properties will be based on the criteria for designation as established by the Ontario Heritage Act under Regulation 9/06. No properties that are currently not on the Heritage Register are being added, as this project is simply a screening of the properties that currently exist on the Heritage Register.

Community Engagement and Timeline

We encourage you to attend future Open Houses and Public Meetings scheduled over the course of the project. Additional information and materials from the Open House on October 8, 2019 are also available below. When complete, the final, updated Heritage Register will be be presented to the Heritage Advisory Committee and Council for approval, which is currently anticipated for the Spring of 2020.
