EHC and EHB civic heritage brief
In an October 8 media release, EHC and Edmonton Historical Board shared a document on the heritage issues of importance to each of the municipal wards and the city as a whole. Edmonton’s Heritage & Historic Resources was designed as an introduction and ward breakdown for citizens and candidates in advance of the October 18 civic election and remains an important reference for the new council and the general population.
The Edmonton Heritage Council has undertaken a number of initiatives that explore Edmonton’s past and present, and look toward the city’s future with the goal of providing Edmontonians a deeper understanding of who they are.
The Edmonton Heritage Council’s reports include strategic plans, foundational statements, annual reports and other research, undertaken in an effort to develop and promote informtaiont about Edmonton’s heritage to its citizens.
Our blog is where we keep the public and EHC members up to date on what’s happening around the Edmonton Heritage Council office, ideas we’re interested in, upcoming events and new initiatives we’re working on.
