Re: Main Street East Heritage District
October 16, 2020
As a concerned Grimsby resident, I am asking you to vote Yes in favour of the immediate start of the Main Street East Heritage Conservation District Study and the interim control bylaw as recommended by the Heritage Grimsby Advisory Committee. Only a Heritage Conservation District will ensure solid protection at an LPAT challenge under current provincial legislation, while supporting and defining desirable future development.
Responsible development and heritage conservation were major campaign issues in 2018 for which Grimsby residents voted strongly in favour.
While other decisions you’ve made could be blamed on the policies decided by the former Council, the results of this study are entirely in your hands.
It is imperative that these actions be taken now to put a halt to the unacceptable type and level of development that continually threatens the entire town’s heritage character. This is your best chance to start acting on your strategic priorities for responsible development and heritage preservation. Please do not disappoint your constituents.
Send us your thoughts and we’ll publish them right here for everyone to see:
