A community heritage register is an official listing of properties identified by a local government as having heritage value or heritage character. Inclusion on a community heritage register does not constitute heritage designation or any other form of permanent heritage protection. The process for adding properties to the Maple Ridge Community Heritage Register (or deleting properties) is outlined in Maple Ridge Heritage Procedures Bylaw No. 6951-2012. For more information on the purpose and benefits of a community heritage register, please see "Heritage Conservation: A Community Guide" through this link to the BC Heritage Branch.
