Conservation Review Board Recommends Designation of 47 Alice Street

December 24, 2008

The Conservation Review Board has released its decision with respect to 47-49 Alice Street.  The CRB conclusion is:

“Based on the evidence heard, it is the recommendation of the Conservation Review Board that the property know municipally as 47 Alice Street and described at Lot 40 and Part Lot 39, Plan 244 in the City of Guelph be protected under s.29 of the Ontario Heritage Act R.S.O., Chapter 018 as amended 2006.”

Unlike the OMB, the CRB makes a recommendation on its findings as it relates to the Act, however, final decision on designation still rests with Council.   City staff will prepare a report and the matter will likely find its way back to Council early in the new year.
