Heritage Planning at The City of Calgary


Heritage Planning is a specialized part of City Wide Policy, focused on achieving the goals of the Calgary Heritage Strategy and Municipal Development Plan. Where sites of historical significance have been identified by Heritage Calgary or other formal evaluation, Heritage Planning works with property owners to provide information, application review and policy support for conservation. They also offer a grant program and other community-specific benefits to eligible owners willing to legally protect their sites under the Historical Resources Act of Alberta.

Heritage Planning’s work with privately-owned property is part of The City’s overall approach to conserving our heritage. This includes the management of public heritage buildings through Facility Management and cultural landscapes through Calgary Parks.
