Grant for Eversley Church

Staff report on April 23rd Council agenda recommends approval of a heritage permit application for replacement of main door of the Eversley Church on Dufferin.  As reviewed in the report the work is being done such that the outcome is authentic to the period and that the heritage features are respected.  In addition it is recommended that the property owner be awarded a heritage grant of $6,000 to contribute to the project.  As indicated in the report, the project is very much needed as deterioration is visible.  The Heritage Advisory Committee and Council play an important role in protecting worthy heritage properties but we need property owners to pay attention to the conditions of their property and to take appropriate action.  Our heritage grant program is available for owners of designated properties.  I am delighted to see it being used to help with the project.
