- 1978 -
A group of Edmontonians concerned about the rapid destruction of historical buildings in the city formed the Society for the Protection of Architectural Resources in Edmonton (SPARE) in June 1978. Their aims were to raise public awareness of architectural resources, to encourage renovation and recycling of older buildings and to promote community involvement with architectural heritage. The group lobbied and made presentations to the public and the city's Development Appeal Board to ensure that destruction of historic buildings only occurred after wide community debate and input.
