Historic Resources Board

Historic Resources Board Meeting & Application Schedule

The purpose of the Historic Resources Board is to encourage the preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historic properties within the city through the designation of Historic Sites, Structures and Districts, as per Ordinance No. 6065 and Chapter 17.5 in the Code of Ordinances. The Board also advises the City Commission on matters related to historic preservation and reviews projects that may affect designated historic properties. The board has an Action Plan that identifies and prioritizes activities with which the board is involved. If you have a project that needs to be reviewed by the Historic Resources Board, visit our applications page.

The board consists of seven members. Those appointed should have a demonstrated interest, knowledge or training in fields closely related to historic preservation, such as history, architecture, landscape architecture, architectural history, archeology, planning, engineering, real estate, law, finance, building trades, urban design and geography. At least three members shall be preservation-related professionals, such as an architect, architectural historian, archeologist, historian, landscape architect, planner or engineer.
