Tonight – Hamilton Heritage Meeting

The City of Hamilton invites all citizens to a public open house and facilitated public meeting to inform and engage citizens about the Downtown Hamilton Built Heritage Inventory Study.
The Open House and facilitated session will be held at LIUNA Station, 360 James Street North, Hamilton, on July 10th.

A Public Open House will take place first from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. followed by a facilitated session from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

City Council has directed staff to complete a pilot study of inventoried properties in the downtown and update the existing Inventory of Buildings of Architectural and or Historical Interest. An extensive research and documentation project was undertaken and information has been incorporated into a database. Working with ERA Architects, phase two of the project is underway; developing a methodology to evaluate the approximately 800 properties based on the Regulation 9/06 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

In the context of this direction, the open house will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the Downtown Built Heritage Inventory Project, the Ontario Heritage Act and the municipal designation process. We encourage you to participate in the evening facilitated session which will include an opportunity to share ideas about built heritage and the value Hamiltonians place on heritage and conservation.

Hamilton is a city that is rich in cultural heritage which helps to strengthen the city’s visual identity, enhance tourism, and increase quality of place and community pride.

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.
