HERITAGE CONSERVATION DISTRICT STUDY

The purpose of a Heritage Conservation District (HCD-OHA Part V) is not to prevent development, but to provide the community with tools to help appropriately manage change within a historic area.

The Study of a potential Heritage Conservation District commenced on July 31, 2018, with a meeting of resident and commercial stakeholders. The discussion during the stakeholder meeting included a number of questions and responses, which are shared in the document below titled “Q & A – Heritage Conservation District Study Stakeholder meeting July 31, 2018.” The presentation from the stakeholder meeting is shared in the presentation titled “Presentation – Heritage Conservation District Study Stakeholder meeting, July 31, 2018.” 

The second public meeting held November 7, 2018 included a brief presentation on the work to date including the history and evolution of Russell Village, study area features, character areas and streetscapes and some preliminary potential Heritage Conservation District boundary options. The presentation was followed by group discussions on history and evolution, natural heritage and cultural heritage, and character areas and streetscapes. These group discussions served to inform the discussion of potential Heritage Conservation District boundary options. Click here for the full presentation.

We welcome your feedback, questions and comments on the meeting presentation, key interest areas (history and evolution, natural heritage, cultural heritage, character areas and streetscapes) and/or the preliminary boundary options.  You can provide input through the survey available at the top of the page until December 6, 2018 and/or by e-mailing additional information or comments to Alix Jolicoeur at alixjolicoeur@russell.ca or Dominique Tremblay at dominiquetremblay@russell.ca

Timeline and next steps for the process are outlined below:
