Built Heritage Assessment Community Consultation #2: Heritage Value and Heritage Attributes

Thank you for your continued interest in the Collingwood Grain Terminals Built Heritage Assessment. We had over 400 people complete the first survey. Thank you! We are now gearing up for the second phase of consultation which will include both in-person and online opportunities.

One of the key features of a built heritage assessment is figuring out what heritage features, elements, or aspects of the buildings and landscape the community values and why. As part of the second consultation, we will provide additional information on the how heritage value is established in the Ontario Heritage Act (Ontario Regulation 9/06), clarify what a heritage attribute means, and explain the role heritage value and heritage attributes play in a Built Heritage Assessment. A preliminary list of heritage attributes will be presented for comment and feedback.

We want to hear from you! There are multiple ways to learn more and have your voice heard.

In-Person Opportunities

ARA heritage staff and Town of Collingwood Staff will be available in person at Town Hall (97 Hurontario St) on September 18th, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the project, ask questions, or simply review the information boards at your own leisure. Please note that COVID19 protocols will be in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety. Rain or shine.

Online Opportunities

A virtual presentation, hosted through Zoom, will be conducted on September 22nd, 2021, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. ARA will give a presentation on the preliminary heritage attributes followed by a Question-and-Answer period.

The second survey will be open for community feedback on September 16th and will close September 30th. Feedback will be related to the preliminary heritage attributes of the Grain Terminals and surrounding area. We encourage survey participants to attend the virtual meeting or learn more about the heritage assessment process through the important links posted prior to completion of the survey.

If at any time you have any questions, please post them in the Question section, or email Amanda Pegg at townhall@collingwood.ca. If you want to learn more about Heritage and the Built Heritage Assessment process, please see resource in the Important Links Tab.
