Cultural Heritage Strategy

The Cultural Heritage Strategy has been developing since 2015 with stakeholder input and other background research. Feedback has been accepted from local committees, associations and interested members of the public to develop the draft Heritage Strategy.

The Cultural Heritage Strategy focuses on four tactics to conserve, protect, enhance and celebrate Barrie’s cultural heritage resources:

  1. Knowing​
  2. Protecting
  3. Managing
  4. Communicating

Each tactic has actions to be completed in order to achieve that tactic’s desired outcome.

Public feedback collected

Your feedback is important to us. Feedback about the draft Heritage Strategy was gathered from October 12 - November 5, 2017 through a survey and drop-in sessions. Results will be used to determine which action items should be prioritized and will help develop the Heritage Barrie implementation plan. New action items will be incorporated into the strategy where possible.

Next steps:

  • The Heritage Barrie Committee will discuss public feedback and updates to the draft Heritage Strategy on November 7, 2017. This meeting is open to the public and will take place at 7 p.m. at City Hall (70 Collier Street) in the Sir Robert Barrie room (2nd floor). Heritage Barrie committee members will provide feedback and any comments/editing suggestions to Planning Services by November 14, 2017.
  • Planning Services will work with Aboriginal, Indigenous Métis and First Nations peoples to ensure they are accurately and respectfully represented within the Heritage Strategy.
  • Planning Services will review all feedback (public, Aboriginal, Indigenous Métis and First Nations peoples, and Heritage Barrie Committee) and make changes to the draft Heritage Strategy and Action Items Matrix as appropriate.
  • Once the above points are complete, a report with Final Recommendations will be prepared for consideration by General Committee (estimated to happen in January 2018, subject to no significant considerations or changes being proposed as a result of feedback gathered).
