The Queen’s Park Heritage Conservation Area was adopted unanimously by council on June 13, 2017. The HCA is the result of 3 years of hard work, countless hours of research and meetings by the dedicated members of the Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Heritage Study Group working in conjunction with the City. It is their work that created the basis for the HCA we have today and we thank each and every one for their time and ongoing recommendations. However, it is the support of the Queen’s Park neighbourhood residents that was the driving force behind the successful implementation of the HCA.
On behalf of the QPRA I would like to thank everyone who supported the development of Queen’s Park HCA. Your interest and understanding of the complexities of creating an HCA was greatly appreciated throughout this long process. Thank you for participating in the many meetings held by the QPRA and the city, displaying lawn signs, attending workshops, completing on-line surveys, writing letters and attending and speaking at council. With an undertaking of this magnitude there is always going to be opposition of some kind. The QPRA, City staff and Council listened to these concerns and worked together to address the relevant issues in creating this HCA for the Queen’s Park neighbourhood.
There is still work to be done to determine that the incentives offered benefit all the homeowners and that they are implemented as quickly as possible. The QPRA is also hoping to work with the city to share information about the HCA so that all the residents have a clear understanding of our HCA.
Thank you again for your continued support.
