Demystifying Heritage Designation 2 – November 14th!

Experience, on November 14, the second heritage designation workshop, featuring home and building owners who have had their historic properties legally protected (designated) and heritage experts familiar with the procedure. Four speakers will share their designation stories and cover such topics as generating and selling unused density, advantages for heritage in the planning and development process, and taking advantage of City and Provincial grant programs. Learn about historical designation from people who have experienced it:
Erin van Wijk – Heritage Planner
Mark Erikson – the Withrow Residence in Parkdale
Kris Nordal – the Findlay Apartments in the Beltline
Michel Berdnikoff – the Somerville Duplex in Cliff Bungalow-Mission
Sign up now via Eventbrite – the first session back in March was a full house! https://demystifyingdesignation2.eventbrite.ca
Do you own a “century home” (or a mid-century modern gem), or deal with historic buildings in your work? Or are you just interested in how to protect Calgary’s heritage?  Have you wondered how buildings get on the City’s heritage inventory or get “designated” as heritage sites, and what’s the difference?  Come and hear from the experts.
