At its August 26th meeting, City Council voted unanimously to deny the demolition application for 56 Angus Crescent and to begin the heritage designation process for the property.

In addition, Councillor Barbara Young asked the City to establish an Architectural Control Zone for the Crescents neighborhood, which includes the Bagshaw Residence. This control zone has the potential to be a model for other heritage neighbourhoods in the city.

We still have a few more hurdles to clear before the designation of the Bagshaw Residence is finalized and the first architecturally protected neighbourhood in Regina is established. We ask for your continued support as we follow the City of Regina’s progress through this process.

Heritage Regina would like to thank the Cathedral Area Community Association’s Trish Elliott (CACA Planning Advisory Committee) and Brad Olson (CACA President), and long-time Crescents residents Jeannie Mah and Edward Jones for their time and commitment to protecting and preserving this important heritage property.
