The Regional District of Central Kootenay is taking an exciting step in developing a Community Heritage Register.

A Community Heritage Register is a planning tool within the Local Government Act that allows a local government to formally identify historic resources so that they may be integrated into land use planning processes. It is an official list of places recognized by the Regional District as having heritage value.

Heritage can mean different things to different people. It can include buildings, groups of buildings, sites, landscapes, views, industrial or agricultural features, natural features, roads, trails, spiritual places, events, stories and memories … anything a community identifies as having heritage value.

This questionnaire is to collect your ideas to:

a. Understand the value of heritage in the RDCK, and
b. Hear from you about the places that matter - the heritage resources that you feel should be included on the RDCK community heritage register.
