Mandate

The Town of Mono is rich with heritage, events, people and stories that paint a colourful picture of early settlers' life in this country. The Town has maintained its rural and natural character with its many well-preserved and sometimes unaltered examples of early pioneer life. It is the mandate of the Heritage Committee to not only unearth the history, but to provide a means of preserving it while fostering an atmosphere of community awareness and pride.

Tasks

The Heritage Committee is compiling an ongoing inventory of buildings in the Town that may be of historic value. A photographic survey is underway by the Committee members of all barns in the Town. As well, a photo record of all existing bridges has been completed with the assistance of the Town's Public Works Department. The Committee continues to research properties that have been determined to be of historic value.

The Town of Mono Heritage Committee is constantly searching not only for properties suitable for designation, but for documents, local histories, stories, memorabilia, old deeds, photographs, and any other memories and recollections that may fill in the tapestry of local history. Let us hear about the history of buildings you know; share old photographs or clippings so they can be copied.

Organization

The Heritage Committee is a group of interested volunteers appointed by the Council to act as the advisory body on matters of architectural and natural heritage within the Town. Members are residents of the Town from many occupations including architects, artists, and local historians who are appointed by Council.

Members are appointed to the Heritage Committee from time to time by Council. There is no upper limit to the number of members that may be on the committee. One Council member also sits on committee.

Meetings

Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Municipal Office Committee Meeting Room.

Meeting dates and location are subject to change. Meetings, including agenda, are published on the Council and Committee Meetings Calendar page.
