COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS

Cumberland: Heritage Basics

One of the new HeritageBC workshops was presented to the Village of Cumberland's newly formed Heritage Commission, councillors, mayor and members from the community on May 5 2014. 

Karen Dearlove, Capacity Planner, lead an interactive 'Heritage Basics' workshop to help guide participants in making decisions about the Village of Cumberland’s Historic Village Commercial Core Heritage Conservation Area and future heritage conservation planning.  

We look forward to working further with the Village of Cumberland with workshops on 'Writing Statements of Significance' and 'Community Heritage Values'.
