In the matter of the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter O.18;

And in the matter of the structure and property known municipally as the “Canal Construction Mural”

TAKE NOTICE THAT the Council of the City of Welland intends to designate the property known as the “Canal Construction Mural” located municipally at 140 King Street, as property of historical interest under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter O.18, as amended.

REASONS FOR THE PROPOSED DESIGNATION:

Key attributes of this structure that reflects its cultural heritage value to the City of Welland include the location of the mural on the Welland Museum in the downtown core across from Merritt Park and adjacent to the recreational waterway and Welland Canals Parkway Trail. The mural’s theme, “construction of the Welland Canal bypass – machinery” relates it to the 200-year history of the Welland Canal which was central to the inception and growth of the City of Wel1and. It’s size (27foot x 17foot) and central location make the mural a familiar landmark in the downtown core. The mural is one of a series of giant murals in the downtown core and contributes to the continuity of the display of Festival of Arts murals in the downtown area, some of which have already been lost. The mural is a bold and striking artistic creation that expertly illustrates its theme and has retained most of its original colour and vibrancy. The mural is the work of an artist, Bas Degroot who is well known for his work across North America and in Europe.

Notice of objection to the proposed designation may be filed with the Acting City Clerk of the City of Welland no later than the 10th day of August, 2018.
