At the Public Hearing meeting held on January 23, 2017, City Council resolved:
- That permission be granted to introduce Bylaw No. 9413 and give same its first reading;
- That the submitted report and correspondence be received;
- That the hearing be closed;
- That the heritage designation at 304 – 3rd Avenue North be referred to the Municipal Heritage Review Board to be reviewed pursuant to Sections 14 and 15 of The Heritage Property Act.
With respect to the above, attached is a communication dated August 15, 2017 from the Secretary, Review and Appeals Committee, Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, providing the Committee's recommendation for the referenced property as per Section 15 of The Heritage Property Act. The Review and Appeals Committee strongly recommends that the City of Saskatoon designate Third Avenue United Church a municipal heritage property. Further, if City Council proceeds with designation, the Review and Appeals Committee recommends that:
- The City of Saskatoon revisit and further define the character defining elements, particularly as they relate to the massing, symmetry and orientation and whether the acoustics of the building need to be included.
- Once the elements are further defined, the City of Saskatoon should discuss the character defining elements with the owner and agree on what elements should be retained particularly whether there is a need to include massing, symmetry and orientation.
