The Old Glenora Conservation Association is established to be a voice for the residents of Old Glenora and Capital Hill. The Association aims to maintain the neighbourhood and its significant historic character by supporting the terms of the Carruthers Caveat and the “Garden City Suburb” layout of the neighbourhood.
The Old Glenora Conservation Association is successful in convincing the City of Edmonton to undertake a heritage inventory of the entire Glenora Neighbourhood.
The Glenora Historic Resources Inventory Report is completed. One hundred and sixteen properties are added to the Inventory of Historic Resources in Edmonton. The report identifies 3 areas within the oldest part of the neighbourhood that possess characteristics that could merit special protection.
