Workshop outlines heritage designation process April 12

ontarionewBLUEWATER – A step-by-step description of how heritage properties are designated will be the topic of the second annual Heritage Conservation Workshop on April 12.

Bert Duclos, who is a heritage outreach consultant from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, will outline the roles of municipalities, heritage committees and property owners in the designation process.

The Bluewater Heritage Committee and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport will host Huron Heritage Training Workshop: The Designation Process on Friday, April 12, from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Bayfield Town Hall, 11 The Square. The workshop is designed for municipal staff and leaders, municipal heritage committee members and property owners.

The event is free but space is limited. To register, please fill out the registration form.

The preservation of properties that have cultural or heritage significance is a responsibility of municipal government, outlined in the Ontario Heritage Act. Heritage committees are often a blend of council and community representation, and report to local councils.
