The Vancouver Heritage Advisory Committee was established initially as the Vancouver Heritage Advisory Board in October 1973 by the passage of by-law no. 4729. In September 1974, the by-law was repealed and replaced with by-law no. 4800 with established the Vancouver Heritage Advisory Committee.
The Committee consists of 11 members, all of whom are appointed by Council. Since its establishment, the structure and functions of the Committee have remained relatively stable. The functions of the Committee are to advise Council on the following matters:
- the need for preserving heritage buildings, structures and lands, which collectively represent a cross-section of all periods and styles in the City's historic and cultural evolution;
- the costs and benefits of preservation; the compatibility of preservations with other lawful uses of the buildings, structures or lands; and (in particular),
- recommendations to Council respecting the designation of heritage buildings, structures and lands and the demolition, preservation, alteration or renovation of those buildings, structures and lands.
Official custodian was the Office of the City Clerk
Scope and content
Series consists of two subseries: "Inventory forms" and "Research files", relating to the preparation of an inventory and report containing heritage evaluation analysis of Vancouver's school buildings. The consultant's final report (filed at 79-D-5 file 19) was presented by the Heritage Advisory Committee to the Standing Committee on Planning and Development; it then formed on clause of a report presented to Council by the Standing Committee on 15 June 1982. The "Inventory forms" subseries (1982) contains information on each school building such as construction date, history, architecture, and urban context, and general heritage evaluation. The "Research files" subseries (ca. 1900-1982) consists of background files (including photographs taken for quick reference purposes by the consultant), inventory forms (including photographs), and the consultant's report. All schools were assigned a site number, so both subseries are arranged in site number order.
