Historic Preservation

Thousand Island Park Historic Preservation

So, you’ve decided to renovate your cottage, possibly build an addition or a shed, add or change exterior steps and/or railings, etc. or maybe even demolish your existing cottage and rebuild. This type of work and indeed, any renovations or repairs that will alter or change the outside appearance of your cottage in any way, requires a Preservation Permit before work can begin.

To many TI Park cottage owners, the Preservation Permit application process may seem akin to climbing Mt. Everest-- a daunting, difficult and taxing uphill climb. But like a professional mountaineer, if you take a little time to familiarize yourself with the climb and prepare accordingly, attaining your goal of getting that permit is easier than you might think.

To help all cottage owners better understand the process, we offer the following step-by-step guide.
