Study Background:

On December 13, 2011 Aurora Town Council consulted with the Aurora Heritage Advisory Committee and endorsed the initiation of the Southeast Old Aurora Heritage Conservation District Study Area.

Heritage Conservation Districts (HCDs) are areas protected by a municipal By-law, passed under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act, by Aurora Town Council. HCDs are designated in order to conserve their significant attributes, which requires special care and attention in the planning process. HCDs can include residential neighbourhoods, commercial areas, and mainstreets, for example. The organization of streets, structures, views, plantings, and other such features can contribute to their identified cultural heritage values.

Currently, The Town of Aurora has one Heritage Conservation District designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act, known as the Northeast Old Aurora Heritage Conservation District.

In order to facilitate the process of initiating an HCD study, public workshops and information sessions will be announced in the future. Attendees of this workshop will be able to learn more about Heritage Conservation Districts and voice their opinions.
