Heritage Vancouver just released their annual list of endangered sites, and the Hollywood Theatre is in the #1 spot.
The list is much anticipated by heritage advocates, as well as anyone concerned about preserving the character of this city in the wake of the pell-mell rush of development.
While this is not a list that we would wish to be on top of, the fact is that it makes for a tremendous boost in awareness of the plight of the Hollywood, and that is very welcome.
One can only hope that this extra publicity helps speed us toward a solution that benefits the community, the owner, and the city. Read the Coalition’s vision of how that would work, and if you haven’t yet, be sure to write the Mayor and council with your support!
