Emergency Council meeting to designate 18-28 King Street East, Hamilton Ontario as historically significant under the Municipal Heritage Act sign now

"There is no way to stop the demolition permit for 18-28 King Street East unless Council convenes an emergency meeting before January 9 to designate the buildings."

This petition services notice to Hamilton City Council that an emergency Council meeting should be held to designate 18-28 King Street East, Hamilton Ontario as historically significant under the Municipal Heritage Act.  The buildings at 18-28 King Street East, some of which predate Confederation, are not designated heritage buildings but have been identified as properties of interest.

Wilson-Blanchard has filed for demolition permits for the remaining Victorian buildings lining the south leg of Gore Park between James Street South and Hughson Street South.

No more details have emerged from this proposal, but Wilson-Blanchard has clearly decided to proceed with the demolition of the rest of the King Street buildings anyway.

A grocery store and multi-level parking lot would destroy the pedestrian character of Gore Park. The centre of the downtown core and such structures would be built without any consideration made for the architectural integrity of the downtown core.

Please support this online petition intended to be presented to the City of Hamilton prior to January 1, 2013.
