The Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) was established in 1986 with the City's adoption of a Historic Preservation Program. In 2010, an updated Historic Preservation Plan was adopted by the City and acts as the workplan for the HLC.
The Commission is made up of City residents who volunteer their time and professional expertise to review, designate, and encourage the preservation of historic resources, as well as providing review of certain development applications for conformance with the historic preservation code standards and guidelines. Federal program requirements specify that a majority of the HLC should be comprised of professionals in the fields of history, archeology, anthropology, architecture, conservation & curating, engineering, historic preservation, and landscape architecture.
