We experience neighbourhoods, communities, and areas as unique and memorable through the ways that buildings and streets connect with surrounding landforms, watercourses, and vegetation. The interaction of these elements creates a ‘sense’ of place. Topography, ground-cover and tree canopy also define the quality of these places. Some of these areas and characteristics can have significant cultural heritage value.
In 2005 the City of Mississauga identified these types of places by developing a Cultural Landscape Inventory. With the City’s growth, the Inventory is now being updated and ways to manage these landscapes are being re-examined. The Conserving Heritage Landscape project begins with reviewing the following 10 areas that were identified in the 2005 Cultural Landscape Inventory study and identifying the key attributes and characteristics that make these places unique and valued by individuals and communities.
