Unlike many small Ontario towns, Picton maintains a compact townscape with discreet edges surrounded by countryside. Historically, settlement was centred around Picton Harbour, with waterways serving as a connection point to industry, agriculture, and transportation routes between Kingston and Toronto. While development has naturally been shaped by the local topography of hills, valleys, and shorelines, the management of future growth has become an important planning concern.
ERA was retained to assess Picton’s Main Street and provide a Heritage Conservation District Study and Plan. These documents identify significant cultural resources and recommend policy that places value on the heritage resource of Main Street’s streetscape while recognizing the need for Picton to evolve and develop in the future.
