SPC on Planning & Urban Development - January 15, 2018

Update of Approving Authority of Changes to Municipal Historic Resources

The Committee recommended that Council revoke all previous delegations of power authorizing certain individuals under section (6) and (7) of section 26 of the Historical Resources Act. The Committee also recommended that Council appoint the City Manager, or the individual authorized to act in the City Manager’s absence, as the approving authority for matters outlined in subsections (6) and (7) of section 26 of the Historic Resources Act, with the powers and functions described and the authority to further delegate as the City Manager determines appropriate.

The Alberta Historical Resources Act legislates conditions in which the council of a municipality may, by bylaw, designate historic resources as part of the fulfillment of the Minister of Culture and Tourism’s responsibilities to “…the preservation, the study and interpretation, and the promotion of appreciation of Alberta’s historic resources”.

Designation by a council as a Municipal Historic Resource ensures that “Notwithstanding any other Act, no person shall destroy, disturb, alter, restore or repair an historic resource that has been designated under this section…without the written approval of the council or a person appointed by the council for that purpose”. (Alberta Historical Resources Act, Section 26 (6))

Designation of the Fairey Terrace as a Municipal Historic Resource

The Committee recommended that Council give three readings to the proposed bylaw to designate Fairey Terrace as a Municipal Historic Resource.

Designation offers legal protection to an evaluated historic resource, preserving it for the future and making the owners eligible for financial assistance in maintaining the property through existing Municipal and Provincial incentive programs.
