Jasper Place Historic Resources Inventory

Jasper Place Historic Resources InventoryDo you remember this scene?

The City of Edmonton, with Heritage Consultants, Donald Luxton & Associates, are launching an exciting project to develop a Historic Resources Inventory for the Jasper Place area (which includes the Britannia-Youngstown, Canora, Glenwood and West Jasper Place neighbourhoods). The consultant team will be working closely with community stakeholders over the next four months to develop a historic context and list of up to 44 historic resources in the community that can be added to the City’s Historic Resources Inventory. Sites on the City’s inventory are not legally protected, but are eligible for designation (by the owner’s request) which will allow them access to funding at the city and provincial level. The consultant team is interested in hearing from you to help build the historical profile for the community. If you have any historical photographs of the neighbourhood, or old documents relevant to the former Town of West Jasper Place (incorporated in 1950) or any other aspect of the neighbourhood, please contact us at the below email or phone number.
We are also undertaking interviews of early members of the community so if you know of anyone of interest, please let us know. We will be providing updates through the West Jasper Place Community League Communication Director over the next few months. Please stay tuned for details on an upcoming Open House in the new year.

Over the next couple of months, we will be in the neighbourhood taking pictures of houses and buildings. Please don’t hesitate to drop by and say hi.

We are very much looking forward to working in this important historical neighbourhood!
