Report Body

ISSUE

 

The purpose of this report is to provide City Council with the findings and recommendation of the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation Review Board respecting City Council’s decision to designate the property at 56 Angus Crescent (a.k.a. the Bagshaw Residence) as a municipal heritage property and to place Bylaw 2020-68 back before Council for its consideration as previously directed.

 

IMPACTS

 

Strategic Impact

 

The Review Board’s findings and recommendations are presented for consideration by City Council in response to Council’s referral to the Review Board of the matter on October 28, 2020.


Policy

 

The recommendations of the Review Board are non-binding, as City Council retains the authority to confirm its original decision to designate the property as a municipal heritage property or to reverse its decision and allow the owner to proceed with its demolition.

There are no financial, accessibility, environmental, legal/risk or other impacts arising from this recommendation.

 

OTHER OPTIONS

 

Pursuant to section 16 of The Heritage Property Act, and after consideration of the Review Board’s report, City Council has the following options respecting the proposed designation of 56 Angus Crescent as Municipal Heritage Property:

 

Option #1

 

City Council may pass Bylaw 2020-68 to designate the Bagshaw Residence at 56 Angus Crescent as a Municipal Heritage Property notwithstanding the previous objection.

 

Option #2

 

City Council may consent to the objection and withdraw or modify the proposed bylaw.

 

COMMUNICATIONS

 

City Council’s decision to approve or withdraw the proposed bylaw with respect to the property at 56 Angus Crescent from the City’s Heritage Inventory will be considered its meeting on January 27, 2021.  Notice of the decision that is made will be given in accordance with the requirements of The Heritage Property Act.

 

DISCUSSION

 

At its August 26, 2020 meeting, City Council considered a recommendation from the Regina Planning Commission (CR20-74) to remove the Bagshaw Residence from the City’s Heritage Inventory, thereby facilitating the demolition of the property as proposed by the owner.

 

Council did not approve the recommendation from the Regina Planning Commission and instead:

 

·         Approved the designation of the Bagshaw Residence located at 56 Angus Crescent as Municipal Heritage Property;

·         Instructed the City Solicitor to issue and serve notice of Council’s intention to consider the required bylaw; and

·         Directed the City Solicitor to prepare the necessary Municipal Heritage Property bylaw to be considered by Council after the statutory notice period.

 

Public notice of Council’s intention to designate 56 Angus Crescent was issued on September 26, 2020.

 

The proposed bylaw, Bylaw No. 2020-68, A Bylaw to Designate the Bagshaw Residence as Municipal Heritage Property was placed on the agenda of City Council’s meeting of October 28, 2020.  A number of delegations were heard as part of the public hearing.

 

Prior to First Reading of the Bylaw, and in light of having received written objections from the property owners, Council directed that the matter be referred to the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation Review Board for review.  Bylaw No. 2020-68 was withdrawn from the agenda and directed to be brought back for Council’s consideration upon receipt of the Review Board’s report.

 

The Review Board held a virtual public hearing on December 15, 2020.  The Board submitted its findings and recommendation to the City of Regina on January 15, 2020 (attached as Appendix A).  In summary, the Review Board does not recommend that the City of Regina designate 56 Angus Crescent as a municipal heritage property.

 

Following receipt and filing of the Board’s Report, City Council will consider Bylaw 2020-68 to designate 56 Angus Crescent as a municipal heritage property. 

 

Notwithstanding the Board’s recommendation or any objections that have been received, it remains Council’s sole prerogative to:

·         accept the Board’s advice/recommendation to not designate the property as municipal heritage property and thereby remove the property from the City’s Heritage Inventory; or

·         confirm its decision from August 26, 2020 and pass Bylaw 2020-68 to designate the property as municipal heritage property.
