What is this Cultural Heritage Landscape Study about?

Identifying and conserving cultural heritage resources that are significant to a community is an important part of planning for and managing change. In addition to individual buildings and structures, cultural heritage resources can include groupings or concentrations of resources and features within broader landscapes such as: villages, neighbourhoods, former industrial complexes, cemeteries, parks, natural areas and farmsteads. These groupings of resources are called Cultural Heritage Landscapes (CHLs) and contain structures and landscape features that together have a greater value than the sum of their individual parts.

This Cultural Heritage Landscape Study is a collaborative endeavour between the University of Waterloo’s Heritage Resource Centre, the Region of Waterloo, and the Township of Wilmot. The study objective is to identify and evaluate the significance of CHLs found within Wilmot and North Dumfries townships. This will be accomplished through research, field work and most importantly, eliciting and weighing community values and participation via methods such as: on-line engagement forums (like this EngageWR page); public submissions (both written and images); virtual public meetings and open houses; and one-on-one interviews both virtually, and if circumstances change, in-person.

The outcome of the CHL Study will be a final report and recommendations which will identify candidate CHLs of significance. The final report will be shared on this Engage Region of Waterloo page as well as will be provided to the Townships of Wilmot and North Dumfries for their information and future heritage planning initiatives.
