Heritage in Kelowna
Kelowna’s heritage is a history tied to the land and natural environment and the people who have long understood the richness of this area. Kelowna's heritage is reflected in the buildings, neighbourhoods and landscapes from these earlier eras. These are the homes, work spaces, and community gathering places created by the people who shaped and developed the city of Kelowna.
Heritage Review Advisory Committee
A Heritage Review is currently underway to address Kelowna's heritage management challenges. In order to involve members of the community, a Heritage Review Advisory Committee was created to support Phase 1 of the Heritage Review.
Community Heritage Committee
The Community Heritage Committee (CHC) is an Advisory Committee of Council. The objective of the Committee is to advise Council on any matter related to the heritage significance of any building, structure or landscape feature located within City limits.
*The CHC is currently inactive.
