Please accept this invitation to drop in on the public open house for the Durand Neighbourhood Built Heritage Inventory project on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 between 3:00pm to 7:00pm.  City Hall, 2nd Floor Mezzanine

 What is the Durand Inventory project?

The Durand Neighbourhood Built Heritage Inventory project is an initiative to update the City of Hamilton’s database of information on heritage resources in the neighbourhood.

The goal is to evaluate each property to determine if it has cultural heritage value or interest that should be recognized by adding it to the Register or further evaluated for potential designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.

 Where is the City at with the Durand Inventory project?

The preliminary evaluations have been completed and a draft report is now available online for review and comment on the project webpage.

The draft report recommends that 76% of all properties be added to the Register and 60 properties (6%) have been identified as candidates for designation.

 What is the purpose of this open house?

This open house is intended to give residents and affected property owners the opportunity to learn more about the project objectives and to review and discuss the candidate properties for inclusion in the Register and for addition to the designation work program.

What are the next steps in this project?

In early 2017, staff will be presenting the final project report to the Hamilton Municipal Heritage Committee for review and advice before proceeding to Planning Committee and Council for consideration.
