About the project

We are doing a heritage conservation district study for downtown Guelph.

In 2021, Council approved the recommendations of the Cultural Heritage Action Plan which included: For Old Downtown, undertake a comprehensive strategy, including community consultation, to direct future cultural heritage conservation efforts and planned change.

The provincial government’s More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022, significantly changed the structure of municipal heritage registers. As a result, all properties currently listed on the Municipal Register of Cultural Heritage Properties must be removed by January 1, 2025. About 1,700 properties will lose protections. 120 of these properties located in downtown Guelph.

To protect key cultural heritage resources within downtown Guelph, the City is completing this study to determine the suitability for a heritage conservation district in the commercial core of downtown Guelph.

How to participate

We held a Public Meeting # 2 on February 20, 2024 and offered online tools here up to March 17. Please visit this page again for updates and future opportunities to participate.
