Preserving the Past, and Protecting the Future of Little Jamaica
While efforts are underway on the motion I moved in September 2020, community members and key stakeholders have underscored the urgent need to preserve and protect this neighbourhood through the form of a heritage conservation district and/or use of other new and existing mechanisms. That is why, I’m moving a motion, seconded by Deputy Mayor Michael Thompson, that requests City Staff to undertake a heritage survey, with the community, that explores and identifies the right tools that will preserve and protect the architectural and cultural heritage of Little Jamaica.
