Countless letters poured in to city hall from concerned community members as soon as the news of the application for the house's demolition  broke out into the public in 2003.  In addition, articles on the house and its history became common as the dispute on its preservation grew bigger. The "Les Amis de Maison Rouleau" or "Friends of the Rouleau House" was quickly formed and urged more citizen involvement on the issue. With the help of the Calgary Civic Trust, requirements were met and the relocation of the house was approved and supported by the city in March of 2005.  

City documents deemed the Rouleau house on the "A" List of the City of Calgary Inventory of Potential Historic Sites and merits preservation and designation as a Municipal Historic Resource.
