The Municipal Heritage Register is an important tool in planning for the conservation of heritage properties and provides interim protection from demolition.

Below is a list of all properties currently included on the Town's Heritage Register (as of September 2023). The register is subject to change at any time. Please contact the Planning Department for the most up-to-date information.
