Conservation Review Board

  1. Township of Muskoka Lakes Heritage Designation

    Location:

    Muskoka/Parry Sound/Haliburton


    Subject:

    Heritage Conservation, Recreational Development, Renewable Energy, Shoreline Development


    Court:

    Conservation Review Board


    Application/issue:

    Intention to designate three properties known as Township Dock at Lake Muskoka; Portage Landing at Moon River; and Shield Parking Lot, in the Town of Bala under the Ontario Heritage Act R.S.O. 1990, Chapter O.18, amended to 2009.


    Held:

    Properties designated


    Reasons:

    The Board found that under s. 29 of the Act, the Township had conducted a reasonable and fair process and the properties hold cultural heritage value and interest to the community. The Board finds that the Township met the requirement of s. 29(3) and s. 29(4); and finds that Swift River Energy’s argument is redundant. Since the Township is not in violation of the Act and the properties are identified as holding cultural heritage value, the Board finds that the Township can proceed with designating the three properties.
