Celebrating and protecting the historic character of Westmount.

Through the preparation of the West-Ingle Area Redevelopment Plan in 1983, it was identified that there were a significant number of properties in the Westmount area that were historically and architecturally significant. Many of these properties were located on 125 Street and 126 Street between 107 Avenue and 111 Avenue, in the present day Westmount Architectural Heritage Area.

Following the adoption of the Area Redevelopment Plan, efforts continued in the community to recognize and protect the historic character of Westmount. These efforts resulted in the formal recognition of the Westmount Architectural Heritage Area in 1997 and the implementation of a Direct Development Control (DC1) Provision.The intent of the DC1 Provision is to ensure that new development and renovations reflect the architectural character of the area’s historic homes. The DC1 Provision includes voluntary architectural guidelines to support this intent.

Online Survey

The Westmount Architectural Heritage Area Rezoning Survey will be open from March 13, 2018 to March 27, 2018 to gather public feedback regarding what people value about the Area, what opportunities and challenges exist to preserve the historic character of the Area and what the City should be considering as zoning options are developed.
