Historic Landmark Board

The Historic Landmark Board is composed of both professional and lay members with demonstrated interest, competence or knowledge in historic preservation. At least 40% of commission members shall be professionals in preservation-related disciplines such as architecture, landscape architecture, architectural history, archaeology, history, planning, American studies, American civilization, cultural geography or cultural anthropology.  Recognizing that professionals may not be available in some communities, this requirement can be waived if the local government makes a good faith effort to recruit professionals and demonstrates that it is capable of carrying out commission responsibilities

The board reviews local landmark applications and applications for certificates of historic appropriateness for landmarked structures. It also advises and participates in other historic preservation programs and projects in the city.
