Capturing the latest developments and alerts to keep Cabbagetown property owners in the know.
On February 3, 2015 City of Toronto Staff reviewed 16 nominated Heritage Conservation Districts (HCD’s). Based on the prioritization analysis, staff identified three potential HCDs for study in 2015, and five for study in 2016. As a result of the prioritization process, it was recommended that the Cabbagetown Southwest HCD be studied starting in 2016 as a potential HCD.
Heritage Preservation Services is currently working towards the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to engage a heritage consulting team to work with the City for the new HCD Study. Once they establish a heritage consultant, the city will be rolling out a public consultation meeting. They are in receipt of the Cabbagetown HCD Advisory Committee’s draft plan, character statements and historical research data on the inventory of building stock captured within this district. The boundaries of this planned HCD are under review by the City with modifications underway.
They are also looking to establish a temporary Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) for the study this summer to advise them during the study phase.
