Who we are
Heart of Newmarket Citizens Group is a non-partisan citizens group promoting the conservation of the cultural and built heritage of the Town of Newmarket.
Why we are
Heart of Newmarket Citizens Group was formed with the intention of opposing what was initially said to be a 6-storey condominium proposed to be constructed in the heart of Historic Downtown Newmarket on the site of the Old Post Office with its iconic Clock Tower.
Our immediate goal is to have the Old Post Office, designated years ago as a building of “Architectural and Historical Significance” under the Ontario Heritage Act, retain its prominence as one of the four landmark buildings within the Lower Main Street South Heritage Conservation District.
We are aware of the development pressures facing other neighbourhoods and will employ our skill and knowledge to face down inappropriate development throughout our Town.
Through education, engagement and advocacy we hope to heighten the awareness of Newmarket’s precious cultural and built heritage.
