Burlington intends to add two-dozen downtown structures to city’s Heritage Register

The City of Burlington added 18 downtown buildings to the Heritage Register.

Two dozen homes and businesses in downtown Burlington are likely to be added to the city’s Heritage Register at tomorrow’s council meeting.

The decision will likely upset many of the owners of the designated properties as the perception is the value of the property will immediately decrease.

The designation severely limits the changes that can be made to the structure without first gaining approval from the appropriate City department.

Councillors need to weigh that against the obligation they have to preserve the history and culture of the community.

Properties on the list are: 353-355 Brant St., 357 Brant St., 359 Brant St., 372-374 Brant St., 380 Brant St., 422 Burlington Ave., 426 Burlington Ave., 437 Burlington Ave., 437 Elizabeth St., 441 Elizabeth St., 468 Elizabeth St., 404-408 John St., 1415 Lakeshore Rd., 2003 Lakeshore Rd., 458 Locust St., 488 Locust St., 492 Locust St., 513 Locust St., 524 Locust St., 2010 Maria St., 1445 Ontario St., 431 Pearl St., 435 Pearl St. and 436 Pearl St.
