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.

Public Engagement Opportunities:

The following engagement activities will take place during the fall of this year and will be open to all members of the community:

  • Survey (online & print)
  • Stakeholder interviews
  • Community open house

The dates and times for these engagement opportunities will be set shortly and will be advertised on the City website and throughout the community.

The project is expected to be complete by January 2020.

If you would like to be contacted for updates throughout the public engagement process or have suggestions you would like to share, please contact the Planning and Strategic Initiatives Department at 604-793-2906 or planning@chilliwack.com.
