Westfield Heritage Village plans open for public input


This past Sunday (June 24th) saw dozens of volunteers and community members gather in Westfield’s Ironwood Hall to review an early draft of Westfield Heritage Village’s new Master Plan. The plan will drive capital development in and around the Village for the next ten years.

While this might seem like a dry exercise, it’s important to note that this is the first Master Plan since the Hamilton Conservation Authority acquired a number of natural properties behind the Village. This plan will direct how those lands are developed and integrated with the Village.

The plan will explore passive recreation opportunities, trails and interpretive opportunities in the newly-expanded area which has the opportunity to offer a larger conservation area experience similar to what is offered at other HCA conservation areas.

Anyone who wishes to review the plan and comment is invited to please contact Katherine Smith at 905-525-2181 ext 117 or Katherine.smith@conservationhamilton.ca.
