Eastern Ontario Visual Character Project Character Statement: Rolling, heavily forested landscape with numerous lakes, swamps, bogs, rock ridges and barrens. Small pockets of productive land allow for small-scale farming and hobby farming. Abandoned fields and vacant dairy barns, stone houses, old farmhouses and other relict landscape features are common. Natural Area: Frontenac Arch Shield Farms

Eastern Ontario Visual Character Project Character Statement: Fort Henry is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Historic Site that is a living monument to the important military role that Kingston and the St. Lawrence played in the evolution of Canada. Historic Military Precinct: Old Fort Henry

Residential Eastern Ontario Visual Character Project Distinctive Buildings and Structures Victorian mansions in Belleville, Kingston, Brockville and Perth are evident. More humble pioneer log homes, French Canadian style houses or red brick houses are also found. Gilnockie is a typical limestone house of Eastern Ontario. Kars L’Original Perth Merrickville Manotick Brockville Cumberland Rockcliffe

Rural Industrial and Agriculture Eastern Ontario Visual Character Project Distinctive Buildings and Structures Upper Canada Village typifies rural buildings and structures of Eastern Ontario. Elsewhere, old stone mills, such as those in Carleton Place, Smith Falls and Manotick, show the history of water power in our area. Rural fairgrounds, old general stores and farm houses reflect the agricultural past and present. Almonte Delta Mill Aberdeen Pavilion Bedford Mill Kars

Eastern Ontario Visual Character Project Distinctive Buildings and Structures The Rideau Canal is uniquely associated with Eastern Ontario including the various Lockmaster houses, such as Upper Nicholson’s.

WHY DOES VISUAL CHARACTER MATTER? • Visual Character as an Indicator…community identity • Importance of Awareness …a heritage balance sheet • Value of Planning and Seeing “The Big Picture” • Planning for Land Use in combination with Landscape and Visual Character Don’t it always seem to go, you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone Joni Mitchell; Big Yellow Taxi

WHY DOES CULTURE MATTER TO VISUAL CHARACTER ? • Culture is the soul & expression of the community • Value of Awareness: economic balance sheet eg., N. Carolina’s Handmade in America program doubled culture’s contribution to economy • Culture is the vehicle of differentiation for a region, and the key ingredient in marketing • Integration of Culture in community sustainability planning reinforces value of environment & history Community investment in Culture leads to economic equity

WHY DOES CULTURE MATTER TO VISUAL CHARACTER ?

• Culture is the soul & expression of the community

• Value of Awareness: economic balance sheet

eg., N. Carolina’s Handmade in America program doubled culture’s

contribution to economy

• Culture is the vehicle of differentiation for a region, and the key ingredient in marketing

• Integration of Culture in community sustainability planning reinforces value of environment & history

Community investment in Culture leads to economic equity

Sustainability is all 4 pillars in balance…
