Historic Preservation Commission
The Historic Preservation Commission will identify historically significant property, advise the City Council on the designation of such property, protect distinctive visual characteristics of landmarks or historic district, and educate the public about the opportunities of historic preservation. The seven members serve 3-year alternating terms.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month.
