Council To Hear Reviews and Plans
Prince 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.”
