Each Term of Office, the Town of Georgina invites community members to sit on the Georgina Heritage Committee (GHC).
The Ontario Heritage Act provides that the Council of a municipality can establish a Heritage Committee whose responsibilities include advising Council on all matters relating to Part IV: Individual Property Designations and Part V: Heritage Conservation Districts.
The Georgina Heritage Committee researches and maintains a list of properties, features and areas worthy of monitoring for conservation, establishes criteria for the evaluation of properties of architectural, historical and contextual significance; and recommends to Council properties worthy of designation. Recently the Council of the Town of Georgina supported the GHC’s recommendation to establish a Heritage Register.
The GHC also reviews planning documents, development applications, building permits and sign permits as they pertain to identified heritage resources and review municipal, provincial and federal heritage legislation.
