Heritage Management Strategy

Como Lake, CoquitlamComo Lake - a key part of Coquitlam's landscape

The City of Coquitlam is developing a comprehensive strategy to address heritage of all kinds – from historic buildings and landscapes to intangibles such as community identity – and guide how it is protected and celebrated in Coquitlam in the years to come.

The research and public consultation stage of the project is complete, and the next step includes reviewing the data and developing a draft strategy in fall 2021.

Latest Update

On April 12, 2021, staff reported to Council on the public input from the engagement process and outlined a new innovative approach being considered for Heritage Revitalization Agreements – a key tool for protecting heritage assets on private property – to be incorporated in the draft Heritage Management Strategy coming later this year.

With Council’s support of the proposed new Heritage Revitalization Agreements approach, staff will continue to develop the improved new process and policies over the coming months. The public feedback received will also be considered as staff refine the themes, vision and heritage values and build out the draft HMS to present to Council in fall 2021.
