The City of Edmonds is seeking interested individuals for the Historic Preservation Commission. Applicants must reside within the city of Edmonds, have a demonstrated interest or competence in historic preservation, and possess qualities of impartiality and broad judgment.
One of the current commission openings is for a professional who has experience in identifying, evaluating and protecting historic resources and a background in at least one of the following disciplines: history, architecture, architectural history, historic preservation, planning, cultural anthropology, archaeology, cultural geography, American studies, law, and/or real estate.
The commission identifies and actively encourages conservation of the city’s historic resources by maintaining a register of historic places and reviewing proposed changes to register properties to raise community awareness of the city’s history and historic resources. It serves as the city’s primary resource in matters of history, historic planning, and preservation. The commission meets the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
Interested individuals may pick up an application at the reception desk in the lobby of City Hall located at 121 5th Ave. N., or call 425-771-0247 to receive an application by mail or email.
