Do you have a passion for heritage?
The City of Courtenay Heritage Advisory Commission is looking for new members to join its ranks. The commission advises Courtenay council on heritage conservation matters, helps develop heritage policy, and participates in activities to honour and preserve the city’s history, including educational and public awareness programs.
Commission chair Judy Hagen said the committee is an opportunity to discover and highlight Courtenay’s past.
“We encourage anyone with a ‘heart’ for conserving the rich history of our community to consider working with the commission members as we assist City staff to reflect past achievements,” said Hagen. “The commission takes into consideration Courtenay’s history so that it can be reflected in future city plans. We all work together, both at our meetings and workshops to advise council on heritage matters.”
Members are appointed by council.
