This post is the thirty-third in a series in which we reached out to municipal candidates to ask their heritage platform. Responses will be posted in the order received.
The thirty-third to respond was Gemma Grey-Hall, Candidate for Windsor City Council – Ward 8. The responses are in the candidate’s own words only slightly edited in a way that doesn’t in any way change what they said.
I really like heritage conservation and adaptive re-use. I’m particularly fond of the re-use of the former Windsor Star building on the corner of Pitt and Ferry, as well as the former Armouries reuse into the School of Music in the downtown core of the city. From a residential perspective, my own home on Pillette is over 100 years old and we’ve extensively renovated but kept the original exterior, window and doors styles. My neighbours the Hong’s also live in an official Canadian Heritage home in the 1500 block of Pillette Rd complete with a plaque marking the significance of the home.
