Are Heritage Conservation Areas Right for Vancouver?

Part one in Heritage Vancouver’s “Shaping Vancouver: Conversations on the Heritage Action Plan” series, 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, consider 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.
