Took the opportunity last night to sit on a City of Kamloops heritage commission meeting last night. The commission advises council on heritage issues and advocates for protection of heritage buildings of significance.
Things that caught my interest included:
- projects to capture the history of Kamloops - through picture, stories, etc
- workshops that educate on how to take care of heritage homes and how to maintain house gardens in keeping with the era a home was designed.
- a request to name a city block after a prominent Kamloops historical family. Discussion ensued on criteria and setting precedents.
I am trying to get to city committees that I don't normally attend. It was a huge pleasure to attend the heritage commission meeting.
