Planning Committee Approves Adding Two Greater Sudbury Properties to the Municipal Heritage Register

May 13, 2014

The Greater Sudbury Planning Committee has approved listing two municipal properties on the Municipal Heritage Register. The former Copper Cliff Fire Hall, at 7 Serpentine Street and David Street Water Treatment Plant, at 355 David Street, have both been identified by the Municipal Heritage Advisory Panel as properties that have significant cultural heritage value.

“Listing these properties on the Heritage Register ensures that these historical buildings are formally identified as properties that may have cultural heritage value or interest to the community,” said Sheila Prusila, Chair of the Heritage Advisory Panel. “This is an important tool in planning for their conservation and a measure of interim protection.”

The benefits of listing a property on the Municipal Heritage Register include recognizing, promoting and enhancing the understanding of properties of cultural heritage value in the City.  The register also helps to provide easily accessible information about cultural heritage properties in the City and provides some interim protection.

Council’s approval is still required to add these two cultural heritage properties to the register.
