City Council Preview - What's on the Agenda for the May 23 Meeting?

The agenda for the regular council meeting this month seems kind of light, which is good because in May it's taking place after the long weekend.

CON-2017.22 13 Stuart Street: Notice of Intention to Designate Pursuant to Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act - So you guys seem to love Guelph heritage stories, and this is one of them. The current owners of 11 Stuart St seem to have been tearing apart the inside of this historically significant house over the last year, which is concerning because there may be as many unique heritage features on the inside as they are on the outside. The home was once owned by Arthur Cutten, and if you've ever lived in Guelph, you've probably heard of him. The original house was built in 1891, with major alterations done by the Cuttens in 1904, and staff is recommending that Council publish its intention to designate 13 Stuart St according to provisions of Section 29, Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act. Building Services has issued a stop work order for all demolition and they are now monitoring the site to make sure everyone complies with this order.
