Following is an email I received from our intrepid Janice Brown. There is still time to intervene to stop the demolition of our iconic Gore Park buildings. As long as they are standing, it is not too late! Please read the following and decide if you can spare a few minutes to send an email to the politicians listed below:
Last week the Planning Committee of Council approved the demolition of 24 & 28 King Street East and partial demolition of 18 – 22 King Street East.
These are all structurally sound heritage buildings in the heart of our city.
City Council meets on January 25 to vote on Planning Committee’s decision.
It is not too late to stop this demolition.
Friends of the Gore and supporters are sending letters to the Mayor and the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport requesting the following:
RE: 18-28 King Street East, Hamilton.
- NO DEMOLITION
- ESTABLISH A HERITAGE CONSERVATION DISTRICT FOR THE GORE
Please do the same and make our voices heard!
Ask the Mayor to contact the Minister of Tourism Culture and Sport to ask that she intervene to stop these demolitions.
Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ask Eleanor McMahon, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport to intervene to stop demolition, to mediate, and establish a Heritage Conservation District.
Email to: email@example.com
Please appeal to MPP’s and MP’s as well.
Thank you, Carol and Janice
