Episode Info: STITTSVILLE - The editor of StittsvilleCentral.ca is asking residents to send emails to city councillors on the heritage committee, asking them to oppose the proposed relocation of the 144-year-old Bradley-Craig barn on Hazeldean Road. The owner of the land the barn resides on, Richcraft, wants to move the structure to Saunders Farm in Munster in order to develop the land. Glen Gower told 960 NEWS that he is opposed to the relocation because the barn is a landmark in the community. "The Stittsville area, Kanata-Stittsville area, is changing so quickly that we have lost a lot of heritage buildings over the last 20 or 30 years," said Gower, "... I think it's really important that we have continuity to the past." Gower said there are a lot of things that could be done to the barn, which could be cheaper than tearing it down and building something new. "Old barns have been turned into theatres, they've been turned into bed and breakfasts, they've been turned into wineries, they've been turned into markets... there's all sorts of ideas." The heritage committee will consider the application for the relocation on Monday. Richcraft is expected to ask the committee to defer a decision until December. Gower has been asking residents to send emails to councillors on the heritage committee, to express the importance of keeping the barn where it is.
