What is a HCD?

• HCDs protect and manage change within historic areas so as to maintain their heritage value and character

• HCDs are enclosed by a boundary and

designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act

• They reflect the historic significance and community heritage values of an area

• They are evaluated by heritage professionals,

planners, urban designers and archaeologists to determine cultural value

• HCDs are designated by bylaws that are

registered on title of each property

Why we designate HCDs

• HCDs contribute to our quality of life and the City’s competitive edge

• They reinforce our identity, create self awareness and promote social cohesion

• Our city’s heritage areas have history and character that contribute to a strong sense of place

• A HCD is a strong but sensitive tool for managing growth in a heritage sensitive environment

• Area and business improvements can be achieved within a values-based conservation planning framework
