Stu­dents work on Her­itage projects

The Glengarry News - - Straight Talk -

North Glen­garry has hired three her­itage co­or­di­na­tors to work on projects such as the North Glen­garry Her­itage Reg­is­ter and the prop­erty in­ven­tory linked to the town­ship's Com­mu­nity Im­prove­ment Plan (CIP).

Kyra Cooper and Alexis Kirk­wood, who be­gan May 28, will spend 12 weeks cir­cu­lat­ing within the com­mu­nity. Alexis has just com­pleted her sec­ond year of stud­ies at Car­leton Univer­sity, where she is pur­su­ing her Bach­e­lor de­gree in Ar­chi­tec­tural Stud­ies and De­sign. Kyra is also a sec­ond-year stu­dent at Car­leton. She is pur­su­ing his Bach­e­lor de­gree in En­gi­neer­ing, Ar­chi­tec­tural Con­ser­va­tion and Sus­tain­abil­ity.

A third stu­dent, Jerry Chow, who joined them June 11, has also com­pleted his sec­ond year at Car­leton, study­ing Ar­chi­tec­tural Stud­ies and De­sign.

They will be seen through­out the town­ship pho­tograph­ing build­ings and fill­ing out forms de­tail­ing a va­ri­ety of ar­chi­tec­tural com­po­nents, in­clud­ing the style of the build­ing, plan shape, num­ber of storeys, type of foun­da­tion and su­per­struc­ture, num­ber and style of doors and win­dows and other ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails, in­clud­ing trim and ac­cents. They will be wear­ing badges iden­ti­fy­ing them as “Her­itage Co­or­di­na­tors.”

This in­ven­tory and doc­u­men­ta­tion is lim­ited to the ex­te­rior of build­ings and will serve as an im­por­tant tool for both the de­vel­op­ment of the North Glen­garry Her­itage Reg­is­ter and the eval­u­a­tion of CIP ap­pli­ca­tions.

The her­itage prop­erty reg­is­ter pro­gram is an ongoing project that was ini­ti­ated by the Town­ship of North Glen­garry Arts, Cul­ture and Her­itage Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee. Dur­ing the first phase of the project, vol­un­teers in­ven­to­ried log homes, stone build­ings and re­li­gious sites in North Glen­garry. They also in­ven­to­ried the build­ings along Main Street in Maxville and Alexan­dria. The sec­ond phase in­cluded the in­ven­tory of prop­er­ties in Ap­ple Hill, Dalkeith, Do­min­ionville, Dun­ve­gan, Glen Robertson, Glen Sand­field, Green­field and Lochiel. This sum­mer, the in­ven­tory work will sup­port Phase 3 of the CIP.

Dur­ing the first three years of the CIP pro­gram, ap­pli­ca­tions could be sub­mit­ted from des­ig­nated ar­eas lo­cated in Ap­ple Hill, Alexan­dria, Dalkeith, Do­min­ionville, Dun­ve­gan, Glen Robertson, Glen Sand­field, Green­field, Lochiel and Maxville. In Jan­uary 2019, the pro­gram will en­ter into Phase Three and ex­pand to com­mer­cial fringe ar­eas, in­dus­trial zones and iden­ti­fied build­ings of sig­nif­i­cant her­itage in­ter­est.

The hir­ing of these three stu­dents is partly sup­ported by the the Govern­ment of Canada's Young Canada Works in Her­itage Or­ga­ni­za­tions Pro­gram and re­cruit­ment was done through the Co­op­er­a­tive Pro­gram at Car­leton Univer­sity.
