HERITAGE BC UPDATE

HERITAGE BC WEBINAR MARCH 6

Using Heritage to Build Dynamic Downtowns

Communities are seeing their downtowns become less vibrant as big box stores set up outside of the community centre. Don't miss this timely one hour webinar to explore best practices in heritage conservation for downtown revitalization.

The webinar material is based on a thorough analysis of downtown heritage conservation projects throughout BC, and is meant to provide a framework for all communities that are considering heritage as part of their downtown revitalization.

Learn about:
• Steps for successful heritage conservation 
• British Columbia heritage legislation
• Planning tools including zoning and design guidelines
• Best practices of case studies from throughout BC
• Economic impact analysis of heritage conservation projects

Presenter Maria Stanborough is an urban planner with expertise in heritage, economic analysis, and sustainable development. She was the project manager for the Dynamic Downtowns Workbook: Using Heritage to Build Strong, Vibrant Downtowns and is currently a senior policy analyst with the Union of BC Municipalities.

Please note: One registration allows ALL staff members at one location to participate. Access to the archived recording is included. Register today!
