Place: The Theatre Centre – 1115 Queen Street West
Time: 6:00pm – Open House
6:30 – 9:00pm – Presentation and Facilitated Discussion & Activity
The evening will begin with an Open House from 6:00-6:30pm, followed by a presentation of the draft recommendations by FGMDA Architects. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion and activity.
“I believe preserving the heart of the village means preserving the Streetscape.
Preserve the original fronts of the buildings above the first floor, ensuring the windows retain the original look, while not regulating the materials they may be made of. The sight lines above the buildings are important too. We do not want to see condo towers behind historic buildings. Leave the apartment interiors unrestricted as they will be unseen by the public. Leave the main floor store fronts to the businesses and the BIA. Replacement buildings should conform to the original look.” Jack Gibney. Please have your say in comments at the end of this article.
The following maps were created by FGMDA Architects as part of this City Planning study DRAFT-REPORT. The full report is too large to display here but may be viewed in part in the following maps, formatted for better web site Viewing.
