Default Re: Gord's Orillia Home

Here in Whitby there are many Heritage Homes and homeowners have to follow guidelines when renovating etc. but having folks traipse thru their home isn't part of the deal. While several of the homes do put their homes on the XMAS decor tour or summer gardens tour that is voluntary, the homes are professionally done and the money raised is for local charities.
I'm not sure if the city can just swoop in and slap a heritage label on a home tho..
and I don't know if the homeowner receives financial help with reno work or not..I doubt it but they may receive a tax break..
I think the current homeowner has some legit concerns at this point considering there hasn't been any dialogue with him..
