Historical properties register to be considered

How can we get heritage properties listed (and protected) faster? City staff will update the Toronto Preservation Board next week with some answers. It matters: properties around Toronto, including in Weston, are torn down before they can be inventoried.

8 Oak

8 Oak Street—to my mind at least, a lovely property with much potential—was one such unprotected property. It will be torn down to make way for high-density homes.


Getting heritage properties inventoried has been a struggle: Councillor Matlow has been asking staff for more than two years for some better ideas on how to do so. Among the possibilities: a citizen-led database, vetted by staff.

      1. Matt, your comments are adding little to the discussion and are treading very close to trolling. Perhaps before you post next time, you could answer the question “why?” Why should one “build, build, build”?
