Mississauga municipal council recently approved grants to help conserve and preserve the city’s built heritage. This year, 11 designated heritage property owners will share $55,831 in matching funding.
The Designated Heritage Property Grants Program is available to owners of heritage properties to provide financial assistance: from $500 to $5,000 for conservation projects and up to $10,000 for structural projects. Properties must be designated under the Ontario Heritage Act and the work proposed must be a restoration or reconstruction of original architectural elements. Work must be completed by October 27.
“Heritage is all around us in Mississauga,” said city culture division director Paul Damaso, in a news release. “The grants recognize Mississauga’s commitment to help conserve and protect properties that are vital to telling our most important heritage stories.”
The properties are located at 41 Bay Street, 50 Bay Street, 38 John Street South, 36 Lake Street, 1009 Old Derry Road, 1011 Old Derry Road, 1050 Old Derry Road, 7005 Pond Street, 63 Port Street, 295 Queen Street South and 1212 Southdown Road.
