Mount Nemo Plateau Heritage Conservation District Study Consultation Meeting

At its meeting on May 20, 2014, Burlington City Council approved staff report PB-38-14, which recommended that a Heritage Conservation District study process be initiated for the Mount Nemo Plateau area. The study will look at the lands and properties in the Mount Nemo Plateau area to determine if there are unique or distinct features and characteristics that are valued by the community, distinct and recognizable from their surroundings, and convey a sense of place. The study will also make recommendations regarding whether or not these features are most appropriately conserved through a Heritage Conservation District (HCD). In September 2014, MMM Group, with Archaeological Services Inc. and DBH Soil Services, were retained by the city to assist with the study. A meeting has been planned to discuss the study and the next steps in the process.

Please join us to discuss the consultant's work to date on the study, to provide input with respect to the community's values and collective sense of identity, and to understand next steps in the study process. This will be an informal opportunity to ask questions of staff and the consulting team and discuss the project with your neighbours. No Decisions will be made at this meeting. Staff will record all input received to be considered through the study process.

Meeting Details:

Date: Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Time: 6:30 p.m.

Location: Conservation Halton's Auditorium, 2596 Britannia Road

RSVP: leah.smith@burlington.ca or 905-335-7600 ext 7508
