April 19: Standards and Guidelines and Neighborhood Design Guidelines
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
It is often necessary to make changes to heritage buildings so that they can continue to have a viable use. But, what kinds of changes should be allowed? The April 19th workshop will introduce participants to two tools that take the guesswork out of these decisions. The Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada is a nationally recognized manual that uses a “recommended – not recommended” approach to guide decisions about alterations to heritage buildings and other historic places. The workshop will also explain how to use the ministry’s new Design Toolkit to create community‑generated design guidelines, another tool for making decisions about changes to historic and non‑historic buildings, infill development and public realm improvements in historic neighbourhoods.
These workshops will be valuable learning opportunities for communities implementing a Main Street program, and for any other organization that owns, uses, manages or regulates historic places. Both workshops have also been certified for professional learning credits by the Saskatchewan Professional Planners Institute. The workshops are designed so that they can be taken on a standalone basis, but attendance at both is recommended for maximum benefit.
Pre-registration is required for both workshops although there is no registration fee. Please note that no lunch will be provided.
Both workshops will be held at:
St Mary’s Anglican Church
3337 15th Ave, Regina
Seating is limited and will be booked on a first-come/first-serve basis.
