Chilliwack Heritage Advisory Committee (August 25, 1980 - January, 1990)

Administrative history

The Chilliwack Heritage Advisory Committee was constituted on August 25, 1980, by the Heritage Advisory Committee Establishment By-law, 1980, No.75 of the District of Chilliwack, pursuant to the Heritage Conservation Act of BC. Its constitution was revised as the Heritage Advisory Committee Establish Bylaw, 1987, No.982.

The committee was established as an independent body of five members, to make recommendations and to advise Counci on matters of a heritage nature. It participated in several projects for the maintenance of heritage buildings and development of sites of historical interest. One of its chief accomplishments was the identification of approximately 400 buildings or sites of heritage value.

In January, 1990, three of the five committee members resigned, signifying a break in continuity of the Committee's function.
