Discussions over the past year have included the The Heritage Action Plan, the Vancouver Building Bylaw, Heritage Schools, the Hollywood Theatre, First Shaughnessy, the demolition of the Legg House, and Heritage as part of the neighbourhood plans.

We encourage you to submit questions prior to the event to info@heritagevancouver.org to ensure that your questions are on the agenda.
