City of Hamilton - Planning & Economic Development
Downtown Built Heritage Inventory Project
Hamilton’s Downtown Built Heritage Inventory project is a pilot study to review and update the existing Inventory of Buildings of Architectural and/or Historical Interest. This project will include field surveys and historical research of approximately 800 properties in downtown Hamilton.
When finished, the City of Hamilton will have a complete database of all heritage properties in the downtown, including possible candidates for designation under the Ontario Heritage Act and/or for addition to the Register as non-designated properties.
The result of the pilot study in downtown Hamilton will then be used to guide an inventory of heritage properties throughout the entire City of Hamilton. This project will facilitate the development of programs that support the management of Hamilton's built heritage.
Details and background information on the project can be found in staff report PED08053 to the Economic Development and Planning Committee.
