Council To Hear Reviews and Plans

Monday, January 9, 2017 @ 5:59 AM

city hallPrince George, B.C.- Tonight will be the first regular meeting of Prince George City Council  and the agenda  calls for an evening of looking back on 2016 and laying plans for the  New Year.From the RCMP ( see previous story here)   to the  Corporate Plan,   Council will be asked to review the work already  completed, and  approve the  plans for  going forward.

The Gateway Association will be on hand to talk about  its  plans for 2017, which include new signage, new  light standards  and  lighting for trees  along  20th Avenue.

The Heritage Commission will request that Council add two  properties to  the Heritage Register.  The two properties are the Munro/Moffat house on Moffat Street,  and the Pitman house  on McBride Crescent.   There are only four properties on the  Heritage Register:

  • South Fort George School
  • 6th Avenue Liquor Store
  • Federal Government Building on 3rd Avenue
  • Nechako Crossing.

All four were added to the Register  in December of 2007,  and not one  site, or  property has been added since.  Being on the  Heritage register   doesn’t mean a property owner is  prevented from  making changes , according to the report to Council “The Heritage Register allows the City to flag properties so that they can advise property owners about the historical value of their property and to allow the City to monitor alterations to heritage buildings.”
