In 1960, the life expectancy in Canada was an average of 71 years. In 2016, that number increased to 82. But those extra years won’t mean much if the quality doesn’t match the quantity. By participating in physical, mental and social activities, you can embrace healthy aging. What is healthy aging? • • • •

Opportunity for good health Maintain independence and high quality of life Optimal mental, social and physical well-being Livable communities that are safe and promote health and well-being • Where older adults can continue to be an active part of their community What can you do to embrace healthy aging? • According to Canadian physical activity guidelines, being active for at least 150 minutes per week can help reduce the risk of chronic disease (such as high blood pressure and heart disease); maintain independence and mobility; improve fitness; maintain body weight and bone health; and maintain mental health. • Canada’s Food Guide was updated in 2019. Check out the Healthy Food Options that include making water your drink of choice, recommends that you use labels, and limit highly processed foods. • Not drinking enough water can cause blurriness and dizziness that can lead to falls. Research shows that as little as one percent dehydration can negatively affect our mood, attention, memory and motor coordination. Try herbal teas or water infused with fruit. • Social connections have been shown to be more impactful on healthy aging than we thought. Isolation has become a serious issue. Check on your neighbours and organize community activities like a walking club, potluck BBQ, and a snow shoveling party.

FIFTY+

Healthy Aging • Being with children and youth keeps us young. What hobby or skill can you teach? What can they teach you? If you don’t have children in your family, look to schools or youth groups in your community. • Volunteer to help others. There is an opportunity waiting for you, whether it is knitting mitts or blankets, being a walking or computer buddy, driving someone to their appointment, or helping with a community project like Age-friendly Peterborough. • Lifelong Learning is an important aspect of healthy aging. Look for workshops that interest you at your local library or community group. If you can’t find it there, hold a book club or webinar viewing to discuss the topic with your friends.

Did you know? Our communities are aging. In 2015, for the first time in Canada the number of people over the age of 65 accounted for a larger share of the population than children under 14 years of age. In Peterborough, individuals over the age of 65 account for approximately 20% of our regional population. Age-friendly Peterborough has created a Community Action Plan that identifies a clear path forward to enhance programs, services, and infrastructure for older adults in the Peterborough region; including the City and County of Peterborough, and the Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations. Our vision is to be a thriving region that is inclusive, respectful, and accessible to people of all ages and abilities. With support from our partners and community volunteers we will work to ensure that older adults’ basic needs are met; they are able to get around the community; are supported to build and maintain relationships; and have the opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute.

Early Settlement Students travel back in time to explore life with the Anishinaabe First Nations, and then pack their bags for a voyage on the immigrant ship ‘John Barry’. The journey continues with Peter Robinson’s settlers to a new home in the backwoods of Upper Canada. Through drama and activity centres, students will explore the experiences of early settlers in Peterborough. History Mystery The adventure begins with a map to your very own treasure chest! Students use primary source documents, maps, photographs, artifacts and drama to investigate and tell the stories of Peterborough’s heritage. Immigration Stories The stories begin in the Museum’s permanent galleries with indigenous migrations, Treaty 20, and the arrival of the region’s earliest European settlers. Students then discover the personal stories of the 1825 Robinson immigrants from Ireland through role-playing and exploring archival documents detailing their journey to the backwoods of Peterborough. Playtimes Past In this gentle introduction to museums, young children enjoy the simple pleasures of a wide variety of games and toys as traditional indigenous and settler life is explored, with a focus on play. Simple Machines What is it? How does it work? Through a variety of hands-on learning activities, students decode the ways in which wheels, pulleys, levers, and screws combine to make “work” easier. Jump into Geometry Math at the Museum! Through our quilt collection, students will become detectives as they search for a variety of shapes and patterns. With the eye of a curator, they will search for the “bigger” pictures and help us solve an old mystery. The program concludes with four hands-on math centres exploring patterns and shapes.

Parks, Trails & Bikeways One of the lesser known natural areas in the City, the south side of the Fleming College campus offers beautiful trails that weave through the forest, and another which travels around the entire campus. Jackson Park offers beautiful trails with a picturesque forest and creek running through it. With its natural setting and pond, this is a wonderful place to spend the day with friends and family.

Operated by the City of Peterborough, the free off-leash dog park is located along the south side of the Willow Creek Trail in Farmcrest Park, and offers free parking at Beavermead Park, and at Peterborough Utilities when the office is closed.

The uniquely diverse topography of Peterborough & the Kawarthas creates endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, and trail systems of varying use and terrain types are among the region’s best features.

From the sandy rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine to the rocky landscape of the Canadian Shield, hikers and cyclists can find a trail to call their own.

Heritage Preservation Heritage Designation Under the Ontario Heritage Act, municipalities can designate properties which have “cultural heritage value or interest.” Since 1975, Peterborough City Council has protected nearly 130 historic properties with heritage designation By-laws. The designation process seeks to manage change to heritage properties so that heritage features are protected. Designation can also make property owners eligible for financial incentives such as the Heritage Property Tax Rebate Program. The HPO, in conjunction with the Clerk’s Office, works to administer the designation program. Individual properties can be considered for designation at the request of the owner, City Council, or at the recommendation of City staff or PACAC. There are currently no fees or other costs associated with the designation process. In 2016, the City designated its first Heritage Conservation District (HCD), The Avenues and Neighbourhood HCD, under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. Conservation districts are large areas of the city that share a common history and are worthy of designation as a group of properties. More information: 210 Wolfe Street, Peterborough ON 705-742-777 x1491 | heritage@peterborough.ca Heritage Preservation Office The Heritage Preservation Office (HPO) is part of the City’s Arts, Culture & Heritage Division and is staffed by the Heritage Resources Coordinator and the Heritage Researcher. The Office oversees all City matters related to the Ontario Heritage Act, including the listing and designation of heritage properties, support for the Municipal Heritage Committee, and the administration of the City’s archaeology policy and heritage incentive programs.

Did you know? The Heritage Preservation Office hosts several fun annual events for the whole family including the Heritage Hunt. See page 114 for more information.

118 2020 Winter–Spring | peterborough.ca

The Heritage Property Tax Rebate Program In 2003, the City of Peterborough established the Heritage Property Tax Rebate Program (HPTRP) to provide ongoing property tax relief for heritage properties. Under the HPTRP, residential property taxes are reduced by 40% and commercial taxes by 20%. The HPTRP is designed to encourage preservation and the enhancement of our rich historic landscape. The City recognizes that well-cared-for historic buildings form a vital backdrop for making Peterborough a vibrant and inviting place to be. The program assists owners with the extra costs associated with maintaining the historic features of their buildings. To be in the program, the building must be designated under the Ontario Heritage Act, the property must have a heritage conservation agreement registered on title, and, in most cases, the property must be located within the central area of the city.

T

he Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee (PACAC) is the City’s Municipal Heritage Committee established under the Ontario Heritage Act. The PACAC advises City Council on issues pertaining to heritage conservation, recommends properties for designation by the City, builds awareness in Peterborough about heritage conservation, and undertakes heritage-related projects such as the annual Heritage Hunt and Doors Open Peterborough.


RETHINK THE RAIN

Take action to protect our waterways. Flood risk is a high priority in Peterborough. Capturing rainwater reduces flood risks and helps remove pollution from our natural watercourses. Currently 25% of Peterborough has some form of stormwater treatment under municipal care. The City is making it a priority to maintain existing facilities and improve upon our stormwater management policies and procedures.

What is Stormwater Management? When rain falls, it flows over roadways and through underground sewers. Pollutants including oil, sediment, and debris are collected as water runs over impervious surfaces such as asphalt or concrete, which then enters watercourses downstream. In newer developments rainwater flows into City-owned and operated stormwater management facilities including over 20 filtering structures and 34 treatment ponds before being outlet into a watercourse.

How can you help? Rethink the rain. As a property owner, you can help reduce maintenance costs and protect out waterways through simple actions that can significantly reduce the negative impact to the beautiful bodies of water Peterborough has to offer. • Don’t pollute, report water pollution, and safely dispose of chemicals, paints, and medications. • Take the Rain Gain Challenge for more ideas on how you can do your part and win great prizes.

Take the Rain Gain Challenge Tell us when you take action on your property and you could win great prizes that help improve our water resources. To enter visit peterborough.ca/rethinktherain or call 705-742-7777 x1507.
