About the Landmarks Board

About the Landmarks Board

The Landmarks Board comprises five volunteer members appointed by City Council. Each member serves a five-year term. Two members must be architecture or urban planning professionals and three members are selected to represent the community at large. Additionally, a member of the Planning Board is appointed to serve as liaison between LB and Planning Board in a non-voting capacity. The board fulfills four major roles and has the authority to make rules and regulations to interpret the ordinance.

  1. Recognizing properties as Structures of Merit
