Value of Heritage Districts


The Calgary Heritage Initiative will create educational resources for real estate professionals, residents, and municipal leader on the impacts of heritage policies and bylaws to protect Calgary’s heritage districts. Heritage districts and heritage places of interest can create niche markets for shopping, living and eating in “differentiated” heritage environments that contribute to urban liveability and the attraction of talent.
