Please Sign to Protect a Historic 1951 Fred Hollingsworth Project in North Vancouver.

Kathleen Staples started this petition to North Vancouver District Mayor Mike Little and his 6 Councillors.

A heritage designated, early and significant (1951) work (3700 Edgemont known as “Shalal Gardens”) by the late West Coast Modern architect Fred Hollingsworth (1917-2015) is in grave jeopardy of being lost. Once gone it will be part of our own unique WEST COAST Modern culture gone for good.

A plan for 100% restoration and protection via a Heritage Revitalization Agreement (HRA) has been submitted by an award winning North Shore based “heritage minded” developer Ryan Deakin (www.havaal.ca/meet-the-team) in partnership with Fred Hollingsworth’s own son, esteemed architect Russell Hollingsworth.

This could NOT be BETTER for the protection of this heritage property.

Not all can be saved and some great ones have already been lost.

This petition is a call to action for North Vancouver District, Mayor Mike Little and Councillors to follow through with express commitments to our community, our tragically dwindling heritage stock and the legacy of our very own Fred Hollingsworth. 

A great deal of municipal resources and taxpayer's funds were spent on formulating and adopting a Strategic Heritage Plan in 2019. WE MUST USE IT!

All donated funds will go to the Binning Heritage Society a not for profit dedicated to the protection and promotion of West Coast Modern architecture, art and culture.

Feel free to call and discuss any aspect of this petition with me. 1 (604) 831 3085
