As a priority project for this term of City Council, heritage staff are working to update and modernize the City’s lists of cultural heritage resources in the City. This Heritage Inventory Project involves surveying and evaluating all properties across Ottawa and conducting research to identify buildings and properties that contribute to the historic fabric of neighbourhoods and the City. Properties that are deemed to have cultural heritage value or interest are recommended for addition to the City’s heritage register. If a property is on the heritage register, owners must provide the City with 60 days’ notice of an intent to demolish a building on the property. Being added to this list does not mean a property is “designated” as heritage, nor does it affect an owner’s ability to make any changes to the property.
Part of Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward is currently being evaluated to determine what properties should be recommended for addition to the heritage register. Owners of properties proposed to be added to the register will receive a letter and information package in the mail. You are also invited to attend one of two drop-in information sessions at City Hall in Jean Pigott Place:
Monday, April 23 – drop in anytime between 4 and 8 p.m.
Saturday, April 28 drop in anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m
Please note: properties already designated under Part IV or Part V (as part of a Heritage Conservation District) of the Ontario Heritage Act will not be considered as part this this project.

Il faut noter que les propriétés qui ont déjà été désignées en vertu de la partie IV ou de la partie V (c’est à dire qu’elles sont incluses dans un district de conservation du patrimoine) de la Loi sur le patrimoine de l’Ontario ne seront pas prises en compte dans le cadre de ce projet.
