Four Homes Added To Nanaimo Heritage Register

NEWS RELEASE

Council Approves Additions to Community Heritage Register
List of local heritage buildings grows


On November 23, Council approved the addition of four buildings to the City's official Community Heritage Register:

-- COWMAN RESIDENCE (150 KENNEDY STREET)
-- PINE STREET BUNGALOW (20 PINE STREET)
-- GRIEVE RESIDENCE (711 WENTWORTH STREET)
-- TUCK RESIDENCE (959 WENTWORTH STREET)

The Community Heritage Register is an official list of properties identified by the City as having heritage value.  Council adopted the City’s first official Community Heritage Register in 2002.  At that time, the Register included 140 buildings, 6 cemeteries, and 6 structures.  Council has since amended the Register by adding 29 buildings, 3 structures, 2 sites, and removing 9 buildings due to demolition.

You can search the Heritage Register online, or request a paper copy through the Culture & Heritage Department.  The public is welcome to submit nominations to the Register using the attached nomination form.

"The Heritage Register forms the foundation of our Heritage Conservation Program, and tells Nanaimo's story through its historical buildings, structures and sites."  -  Bill McKay Mayor City of Nanaimo
