Over a decade ago, in 2004, the City of Mississauga enacted the Old Port Credit Village Heritage Conservation District Plan. This Monday night, November 20th at 6:00 PM, the city along with various local architects and planners will meet with Port Credit residents to discuss the original plan and potentially redefine it.
In a nutshell, the original plan served to guide physical changes to Port Credit over time so that they contributed to the district’s historical character, rather than detract from it. The idea was to gracefully and intelligently develop the town, while bearing-in-mind its historical significance. These developments apply to the city streets, buildings, parks, as well as restorations and maintenance.
As per the official meeting description, “We are revisiting the plan to ensure that it aligns with current legislation, best practices and to ensure that it adequately preserves the village character and reflects the community.”
The organisations attending the meeting include George Robb Architect; MHBC Planners, Urban Design & Landscape Architecture; Wendy Shearer Landscape Architect; and Historic Horizon Inc., with the intention of updating the plan and engaging with residents in Port Credit to “ensure there is ample opportunity for discussion and direct input.” So everyone is invited to join the discussion, which has the potential to truly affect everyone.
The meeting takes place on Monday night at Clarke Memorial Hall, beginning with an open house at 6:00 PM and the official presentation at 7:00 PM, followed by a Q&A. Come on out to join local officials and your fellow Port Credit residents in order to have your say in how the town developers over the next decade!
