The Crowsnest Pass Municipal Historic Resources Board has been working with Community Design Strategies (CDS) since the fall of 2017 to develop a Crowsnest Pass Heritage Management Plan. The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass received a grant from the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation to assist with the development of this plan.

A comprehensive workshop was held with many stakeholder groups in December of 2017 to get input into this plan. The final draft of the Municipal Heritage Management Plan (HMP) will be presented by CDS to the Crowsnest Pass Municipal Council at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 28th for council’s consideration.

On Wednesday, May 29th there will be an Open House from 3:00 to 7:00 PM at the Coleman Seniors Drop-In-Centre to present this Heritage Management Plan to the public. The Open House will include display panels; an overhead presentation and an opportunity to discuss the plan with CDS consultants and members of the Crowsnest Pass Municipal Historic Resources Board.

The Heritage Management Plan will help the Crowsnest Pass be a responsible steward of its historic resources. It is a tool that will provide guidance and direction to identify, preserve, and protect important heritage sites with appropriate heritage planning and conservation practices. The plan provides a framework for the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass, Crowsnest Pass Municipal Historic Resources Board, municipal staff, stakeholder groups, and owners of heritage resources to have a consistent and comprehensive approach to heritage management within the municipal boundaries.

The Heritage Management Plan was preceeded by three Heritage Inventory Projects that identified 105 sites as being of historic municipal significance and would qualify to be designated as Municipal Historic Resources. Of the 105 sites 5 have been designated as Municipal Historic Resources. The inventories are available on line on the municipal website in the planning-development area. They are Phase 1- Coleman and Area, Phase 2- Blairmore and Frank and Phase 3- Bellevue, Hillcrest and Passburg Areas

The Crowsnest Pass Municipal Historic Resources Board is planning a workshop in October for owners of historic properties entitled “Demystifying Designation” to provide information on the process and benefits of designating buildings as Historic Resources.
