    Scope of Mandate

    The Committee is interested in the stewardship of Langley’s tangible and intangible heritage values. Built and cultural heritage values exist in historic sites and in the character of heritage areas, streetscapes, and neighbourhoods. Rural and natural landscapes provide heritage values in landmarks, vistas, fertile plains, country roads, naturally wooded areas, significant watercourses and specifically planted features and landscapes. Historic cemeteries represent social, historical, structural, and archaeological heritage values. Heritage values exist in transportation links through layouts, routing, technology, numbering, and naming related to roads, trails, rails, crossings, air, and water transportation methods. Events and celebrations reflect traditional practices and cultural heritage values. Heritage objects and collections represent archaeological, First Nations, and non-aboriginal heritage values.

    In making its appointments to the Heritage Advisory Committee, Council will consider Langley’s geographic diversity and public interest and appoint applicants who possess knowledge and expertise in the areas of community history, built, natural and cultural heritage, conservation or heritage preservation techniques, community engagement or heritage interpretation practices.

    Meeting Dates

    The committee meets the first Tuesday of every month except for July and August. Refer to the Council Calendar for meeting dates.
