Yes, if your home has a heritage designation. The town has a heritage colour palette for owners who paint and repaint heritage buildings or their trim. No, if it is in the heritage registry, but not officially designated a historic property.
Cobourg has over 760 homes of historical importance. How do you tell the difference?
Homes that define, maintain, or support Cobourg’s character may be added to the historic register if they are in a designated Heritage Conservation District, or heritage designation has been pursued. Cobourg’s historic homes have physical, functional, visual, or historic links to the town.
While your home may not be designated, if it has cultural heritage value or interest, it may still be in the register. For example, if your home is an early example of an architectural style, the design has historic merit, or the craftsman who built it was significant to the town.
You can check the register on the town’s website.
