On April 1, 2020 at 9:30 AM, The City’s Standing Policy Committee on Planning and Urban Development (PUD) will receive, for information, the long-awaited Heritage Conservation Tools and Financial Incentives Report.

The Calgary Heritage Initiative has participated as stakeholders in the Report’s development and has provided two letters to PUD in response to our review of the posted materials.

Here is an excerpt from City Heritage Planning regarding the April 1st PUD meeting. We encourage you to read the full report found at the link below, and if you have time, send your own short letter or note prior to the meeting, and watch online.

The Heritage Conservation Tools and Incentives report is a culmination of over a year of work, including contributions from external consultants, and invaluable feedback from stakeholders. While the recommendations have been updated to receive the report for information only at this time, the proposals for new heritage conservation tools and incentives explored through this process remain unchanged and are provided as Attachment 13 to the report.

 The report is now available to read online, as part of the April 1 meeting agenda. The committee meeting will be webcast live, beginning at 9:30AM on Wednesday, April 1. Stakeholders remain welcome to provide written submissions regarding the report via www.calgary.ca/publicsubmission, which will be added to the Corporate Record. Feedback may alternately be provided directly to Councillor’s Offices, or to the project team through ian.harper@calgary.ca. Anyone wishing to speak remotely to the meeting, or inquire about attending in-person can call City Clerk’s Office at (403) 268-5861 or email at PublicSubmissions@calgary.ca for details and registration.
