In 1984, a BIA was formed in opposition to the push for a Heritage Conservation District Designation, an idea to preserve the street championed by an outsider, London architect Nick Hill. While many, like Corsini, saw the designation as a positive direction for the street. Others, like Ward, opposed the plan because of the limitations and challenges it would pose for the commercial elements of the street, like restricting main street parking and requiring specific heritage renovations.
What does this mean? What is the significance of this story over contested heritage conservation now itself a piece of the streets history?
