At the General Issues Committee meeting on Wednesday May 16, Council unanimously approved the following recommendations for St Mark’s Church and the open space:
- That Tourism & Culture Division, in cooperation with the Portfolio Management Committee, complete the in-house feasibility study to operate St Mark’s as a cultural programming space to be administered by staff at Whitehern Historical House and Gardens as directed by Council in Report CS10-064.
- That Staff complete stabilization of the building to prevent any further deterioration and bring it to usable standard.
- That this project be submitted for the 2013 Capital Budget for Council’s consideration.
In addition to the above, there will be engagement with the Durand Neighbourhood and other stakeholders that will figure prominently in examining the feasibility of using St Mark’s as a cultural programming space.
