No Designation for Shipp Home
Mississauga City Council votes against Heritage Designation Recommendation

April 25th 2012

Mississauga City Council votes to not Designate the Shipp family home

At a recent meeting of the City of Mississauga’s Heritage Advisory Committee, a motion was brought forward to Designate under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act the home of the Shipp family (re: Harold Shipp, Applewood developments) at 500 Comanche Road in Mississauga. The property is Listed on the City of Mississauga Heritage Register as being part of the Credit River Corridor Cultural Landscape. The proposed Designation highlighted Mr. Shipp’s involvement in the building of the City of Mississauga and his philanthropic endeavours, amongst other criteria, and was strongly aligned with the principals and criteria as outlined in the Ontario Heritage Act.

A great deal of discussion ensued at the committee, particularly as a result of Mr. Shipp’s objection to the proposed Designation, and a resulted in a split vote, 6-3, in favour of Designation.

At the meeting of the Heritage Advisory Committee, it was determined that the Shipp House merited Designation under the terms of Ontario Heritage Act for its physical/design, historical/associative and contextual value to the community.

Please see the following link, appearing in Part 1 as Item 2, on the April 24th, 2012 Heritage Advisory Committee meeting Agenda:

The matter then went before City of Mississauga Council on Wednesday, April 25th, where the majority of Council voted against the designation recommendation from the City’s Heritage Planning Staff and the Heritage Advisory Committee.
