Fonds consists of multiple types of records. The City of Vaughan Development Planning Department fonds is constituted of four series: general reference files, 1968-1995; aerial photographs, [ca. 1940]-1991; Cartographic records, 1952-1982 (predominant ; 1964-1974); and Cultural Heritage files, 2015. The first series is semi-active and consists of studies, reports, subject correspondence, by-laws, administrative records, as well as supporting maps and site plans. The aerial photograph series provide evidence of the considerable physical transition experienced by Vaughan since WWII as a result of development. The Cartographic records series consists of plates (i.e. maps showing land boundaries, subdivision, ownership, and all data essential to identify all units thereon), as well as base street maps and topographical maps. Finally, the cultural heritage series consists of housing documentation and heritage inventory files, pertinent to existing and demolished historic properties within the municipality.
