Shaping Vancouver Series 2015: What is Vancouver\u27s Heritage?
AbstractThe evening’s discussion is around what Vancouver’s heritage is and what heritage values ought to be recognized. We then tie these values to a discussion of the Heritage Register, an inventory that identifies approximately 2,200 heritage sites and resources. The register is and has been a fundamental component of heritage conservation in our city but it needs to be updated. The panellists will discuss how our existing register can be improved so that it reflects and recognizes a broad range of heritage values, beyond just the architectural.
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
