RECOGNIZING OUR HERITAGE
SURVEY, INVENTORY AND HERITAGE MANAGEMENT PLAN A Survey, Inventory, and Heritage Management Plan have been completed and adopted for the Smoky Lake Region in 2012. These planning tools are an important and primary step in protecting the heritage places that characterize the very way of life, the sense of time and place in our Region's history. This is done through the surveying of potential historic sites, then prioritizing and completing a heritage inventory for specific sites that are worthy of pursuing historic designation. Once municipal designation takes place, the registered landowner may apply for provincial grant money to assist in the restoration, rehabilitation and/or protection of a particular site. In the fall of 2012, the Survey, Inventory, and Heritage Management Plan have been adopted by Smoky Lake County, Town of Smoky Lake, Village of Waskatenau and Village of Vilna and are available on this web page to the right for reference.
