Media advisory: Rossdale Regeneration to release report & recommendations, Thursday, July 4, 11:30 am

3 Jul

Edmonton- Rossdale Regeneration is a diverse group of Edmontonians who have come together to advocate for the protection and preservation of the Rossdale Power Plant as an important part of our city’s architectural history. The group has developed a report and recommendations on the Rossdale Power Plant, which will be made public at a media event on Thursday, July 4, 2013.

The Rossdale Power Plant is currently owned by Epcor. It is subject to a provincial historic designation which prevents the plant’s demolition. Alberta Culture Minister Heather Klimchuk commented recently that she intends to honour the provincial heritage designation which protects the building. Rossdale Regeneration envisions a creative and innovative repurposing of the Rossdale Power Plant which would allow it to thrive as an architectural and cultural centerpiece of a vibrant river valley district.
