In 2014, City Council endorsed the purpose, terms of reference, and membership of the Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Heritage Study Working Group.

The Working Group consisted of:

  • the Chair of the New Westminster Community Heritage Commission;
  • two members recommended by the Queen's Park Residents' Association;
  • two members recommended by the New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society; and,
  • eight residents from the Queen's Park neighbourhood (appointed by City Council).

The Queen's Park residents and property owners were selected from interested individuals who represented a variety of circumstances, such as the age of the house, property size, and interest in the built environment, as well as potentially those with real estate or development experience.

All members of the Working Group were confirmed by Council. The Chair of the Working Group was the Chair of the Heritage Commission, Councillor Jaimie McEvoy. At the first meeting, the Working Group identified a Vice-Chair, David Brett.

Terms of reference for the second term of the Working Group, which outlined their involvement in the Heritage Conservation Area Review was endorsed by Council on October 17, 2016. The Working Group's final meeting was held in July 2017.
