Citizen Forum on Heritage Preservation

Citizen Forum on Heritage Preservation

  • Date: Saturday, April 20, 2013
  • Time: 9:30 am
  • Location: Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, City Hall
  • Contact: Ward 1 Councillor Brian McHattie
  • Email:

Ward 1 Councillor Brian McHattie invites the community to get involved in inventorying and protecting cultural heritage properties in Hamilton.

There are approximately 7000 heritage properties of interest in Hamilton but little action has been taken to assess these properties and determine which ones should be placed on the Register as per the Ontario Heritage Act.  This forum is the first step in enlisting the help of citizens to see these properties evaluated for protection.

The forum is jointly sponsored by Councillor Brian McHattie, City of Hamilton’s Municipal Heritage Committee, the Hamilton and Burlington Society of Architects, and the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario – Hamilton Branch.

Jim Leonard, Ontario Heritage Trust, Michael Seaman, Director of Planning, Town of Grimsby and Jeff Feswick, Historia Building Restoration Inc. will present their perspectives on heritage preservation. Kayla Jonas, Heritage Resources Centre, University of Waterloo will introduce a citizen tool to evaluate properties.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
