70 PEOPLE ATTENDED two public information sessions, Oct. 19 and 21, that focused on providing general information about Heritage Conservation Areas (HCAs). Former City of Victoria heritage planner Murray Miller gave an excellent power point presentation, now available on ProtectOakBayHeritage.ca . It addresses these questions:
- What is a Heritage Conservation Area (HCA)?
- How does an HCA work?
- What are the impacts of an HCA?
- Are there examples of HCAs in other jurisdictions? (Yes! Many. Victoria has 13, B.C. has 109, the UK has 10,000, just to name a few.)
