Heritage Strategic Action Plan

The City of Chilliwack has initiated the planning process to develop a 5 to 10 year Heritage Strategic Action Plan, to develop a clear vision and direction for an integrated community heritage program, taking into account community values and stakeholder roles. In developing the plan, a variety of tools, policies, and approaches will be reviewed and evaluated and the role of various organizations will be further defined. While built heritage will be explored further in this project, it is expected that the resulting plan will provide a broader view involving local organizations that are involved in heritage and cultural education, promotion and preservation.
