You can suggest new heritage sites Richmond should recognize

The city is updating its heritage inventory

The City of Richmond is looking for help updating its inventory of heritage sites, and it’s inviting the public to suggest possible places for inclusion.

A suggestion can be a building, a natural site, an engineering work or something else you think is worthy of recognition.

The place could be meaningful to a particular community, person, institution or it could have held special significance during a certain era. Perhaps it’s important to a certain event or tradition. Or, maybe its design or quality of construction is rare and worth noting.

“The goal is to contribute to the celebration of the City’s heritage which strengthens a sense of place and enhances Richmond’s distinct identity,” read a city news release.

Richmond currently has about 90 sites in its heritage inventory, but the city suspects there are more worthy entries out there.

You can submit entries via LetsTalkRichmond.ca, which has a mapping feature for entries and a few questions to collect information. Entries can also be emailed to communityservices@richmond.ca or mailed to Arts, Culture and Heritage Dept, City of Richmond, 6911 No. 3 Road, Richmond, B.C. V6Y 2C1.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 24, 2019.
