Heritage Vancouver presents Shaping Vancouver: Conversations on the Heritage Action Plan
Conversation #1- Are Heritage Conservation Areas Right for Vancouver?
The City of Vancouver Heritage Action Plan period –an initiative that revises how the City’s heritage conservation is managed- is in full swing. Join us for our 1st conversation with the public on the plan!
A panel of experts address what Heritage Conservation Areas are, how they are established and work in other cities, and the consequences of forming such areas. Panel members will discuss areas in Vancouver which retain distinctive heritage character, explore whether such areas should be considered for Heritage Conservation Area status by the City, and debate how sensitive to heritage character new developments should be. A general discussion with the audience follows and at the end, everyone will be invited to submit feedback on the evening’s topic to the consultants leading the Heritage Action Plan.
This series is made possible by the generous support of SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement.
