The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.
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 are important and significant to Mississauga’s culture and heritage.
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 second phase of the Conserving Heritage Landscapes project includes reviewing the following features that were identified in the 2005 Cultural Landscape Inventory and identifying the key attributes and characteristics that make these places unique and valued by individuals and communities.
Understanding the elements that make a place unique and important help define appropriate tools and approaches for managing them. Please help us identify what makes Mississauga’s Cultural Heritage Landscapes unique by commenting on any or all of the study areas:
- Farms and Estates
- Parks and Open Spaces
- Campuses and Golf Courses
