Another full agenda for our upcoming monthly meeting, held as always in the Britannia boardroom from 7 to 9 pm. All are welcome!
• Progress on heritage presentations to the Citizens Assembly
• The sale for $1,750,000 of 2185 East 3rd at Garden Park, one of only two Georgian-style houses in Grandview; it sits on two lots and could be demolished, but evidence would seem to suggest that the new owner will go for a Heritage Revitalization Agreement and infill the lots behind the heritage house ….
• Update on the Brookhouse house at 1872 Parker, which has become terribly derelict since its new owner kicked out the tenants and set to redeveloping the double lot with duplexes. The photo below is from a year ago…
• A report on an interesting research project to track down the location of this house …
… occupied a century ago by Samuel Howe which, according to the family story related to us by Judy Webber, his great granddaughter, stood at Venables and Victoria.
• Bruce Macdonald will present his slide show on Grandview history with the planning process in mind. This is important in the effort to preserve Grandview’s heritage buildings, and in the effort to ‘keep Grandview the way it is,’ the comment that Garth Mullins made last year which got the biggest response at the big public meeting on the new Community Plan.
