The Town of Caledon invites you to attend the first of a series of community consultation meetings to discuss the Plan and Guidelines phase of the Village of Bolton Heritage Conservation District project (caledon.ca/boltonhcd) on Thursday, February 19, 2015.

What is a Heritage Conservation District Plan?

Phase 2 of the Village of Bolton Heritage Conservation District (HCD) project will be a year-long process to develop the HCD Plan and Guidelines.

The HCD Plan and Guidelines will detail the objectives, policies and procedures for conserving the area’s heritage character and guiding change and enhancements in the District.

Community consultation will be central to the development of the HCD Plan to ensure that the Plan reflects community values and priorities.

    For those of us who attended this well-managed public presentation and workshop, the account of it in the most recent Caledon Enterprise is highly misleading for the Bolton public, more of whom attended than is stated: http://www.caledonenterprise.com/news-story/5448839-should-downtown-bolton-be-a-heritage-district-/ Its new editor, who was not there, relies on a known planning adversary to describe a meeting in which only a table of developer suppliers refused to actively participate in the lively and mostly very constructive working session in which Bolton folk were asked to describe which areas of the proposed district were most important to them and why. Bill Rea of the Citizen did attend and I have no doubt that his upcoming comments will NOT imply that there was significant opposition.
