Green House report going to Council

Council is set to approve a report from the city manager that will see the funds that were to go to the demolition and replacement of the Green House (the former rectory next to The Cultch at 1885 Venables) used instead for the repair and upgrading of this historic structure.

Grandview Heritage Group is specifically mentioned as an advocate for the retention – our plea to the city was heard! We congratulate the City on this example of stewardship and the statement it makes about reusing and adapting existing buildings rather than the tear-down/build-new paradigm that is wrecking some of the city’s old neighbourhoods.

There will be an article coming out in the Straight this week on it.

Update from Heather Deal on March 4th: “Done – passed on consent!”
