Heritage Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The public is invited to provide input into the development of the City of St. John’s new Heritage Plan which will guide the city in managing, maintaining, and protecting our heritage resources in the future. The plan will align with the Envision St. John’s Municipal Plan and the Heritage By-Law.

The Heritage Plan will look beyond built heritage. It may also consider things such as our city’s cultural heritage and landscapes, festivals, historic events, stories/oral traditions, place names, and public art.

The overarching goals of the Heritage Plan include:

  • Protecting built heritage and recognizing cultural landscapes
  • Working toward reconciliation with Indigenous residents
  • Identifying ways to celebrate our history and the array of cultures in St. John’s
  • Reviewing the Heritage Financial Incentives Program
  • Enhancing accessibility of our heritage, both online and physical forms

Join the discussion and help shape the new Heritage Plan.

Attend an in-person or virtual public engagement session:

  • In person – Wednesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. in the Foran Greene Room, Fourth Floor, City Hall, register here.
  • Virtual – Tuesday, March 14 at 7 p.m., register here.

To learn more about St. John's Heritage, please see the FAQs. Tell us your ideas or use the map to learn more about heritage areas and existing City designated heritage buildings and make your suggestions there.

City staff will review and consider your feedback before drafting the Heritage Plan.
