What Makes Esquimalt Unique? On Saturday, October 18th, Heritage BC representatives were in Esquimalt to facilitate a one-day Heritage Values Open House to explore this theme, and residents were invited to participate.
Share your thoughts on what makes Esquimalt a unique place to live and what is significant about our collective heritage.
Identify heritage values—the significant phases, eras, themes, people and events of Esquimalt’s history and development—as well as places that embody those values. These places can include neighbourhoods, parks, landscapes, views, trails, roads, streets, buildings, and structures. By understanding which places matter to the people of Esquimalt, and why, heritage values can be maintained as the community grows.
From this workshop Heritage BC will produce an “Esquimalt Community Heritage Values Report” that will guide future planning processes and be used as a resource by the Community Heritage Advisory Committee.
