The Register of Historic Resources in Edmonton is a list of structures within Edmonton that have been designated as Municipal Historic Resources through local Bylaw. Municipal Historic Resources may be eligible to receive various incentives.
If an owner wishes to designate their building as a Municipal Historic Resource they must first be on the Inventory, and then submit an Application to Designate as a Municipal Historic Resource to Sustainable Development's Heritage Planner(s).
Owners should keep in mind that, once the building is designated:
- The building cannot be demolished
- Inappropriate changes cannot occur, and any alterations must be sympathetic or in character with the original structure. The Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada will be used as a guide in assessing the appropriateness of an alteration.
- Building use is generally not affected, and additions and changes may still occur.
- The building will be maintained in a fair condition.
- The above restrictions will become a caveat on the property title.
- Property will be rezoned to DC1 (Direct Control Provision)
- Buildings are eligible for financial incentives, maintenance funds, and additional incentives.
