The City of Nanaimo’s Heritage Commission will be hosting an open house from 4 to 8 pm on Wednesday, November 17, 2010, at St. Andrew’s United Church Sanctuary, 315 Fitzwilliam Street, as part of its review and update of the city’s 1998 Heritage Action Plan. The purpose of the open house is to provide a summary of the results of the plan and to solicit public input with respect to where the city should be focusing its resources next as they pertain to heritage conservation policy and action. The public input will be presented to city council in the form of a summary report on the status of the Heritage Action Plan and any new objectives identified that the city should focus on to further strengthen its Heritage Conservation Program.
Review and update of the Heritage Action Plan is identified as a short term action (complete within five years) in the Official Community Plan. The public is welcome to drop in at the open house and review the summary information on the Heritage Action Plan that will be on display. There will be opportunities to speak with members of city staff and the Heritage Commission who will be in attendance and to complete a comment sheet with any input you may wish to provide. For more information about the open house, please contact Chris Sholberg at 250-755-4472.
