Councillors push to improve options for saving historic buildings

Edmonton must act to protect historic areas and heritage properties under continued threat from redevelopment, the city’s former historian laureate says.

“Our best example of what heritage does is what happened in Strathcona. It was going to be a freeway,” Shirley Lowe said Wednesday.

“The community came together, restored a lot of the buildings and created this walkable, connected community.”

A 2005 study showed the district pumps about $100 million into the local economy, she said.
“Heritage isn’t something that costs you money. It’s an economic development tool.”
