For those who have been following the debate over 33 Victoria Terrace, we have an update for you. Following some closed session meetings at Council and the Heritage Committee, the Town has officially published a “Notice of Intention to Designate” (NOID) for the property in Grimsby Beach.
Upon publishing the public notice, the owners have 30 days to file an objection. If no objection is received, then Council can pass a By-Law to officially designate the property under the Ontario Heritage Act.
