Building Owner Engagement in a New Residential Heritage District: Lessons Learned from Clemow Estates HCD Phase II in Ottawa

Saturday, October 14
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM

In this session, we will talk about the Glebe Community Associations experiences related to its Heritage Committee's work on a proposed second Heritage Conservation District, Clemow Estate Phase II. We will outline some lessons learned from the first Phase of the District (designated in 2011) which have greatly influenced our approach to building owner engagement with Phase II. We will outline our One Day Heritage Plaque Project, and how we went about gathering and making our research available to owners. The Glebe's undesignated heritage homes are increasingly under threat of tear downs and modern infills despite the high cost of real estate in the area. With cost not being a disincentive, the only way to combat these threats when formal protection isn't available is to engage the owners to create an appreciation of the heritage architecture and social history of their home, street and neighbourhood, all the while continuing to work towards formal protection where possible.
