Two members sought for Seattle’s Landmarks Preservation Board

SEATTLE – Mayor Edward Murray is seeking two new members to serve on the Landmarks Preservation Board. The 12-member board reviews all landmark nominations, makes recommendations to Seattle City Council for designation of city landmarks, and reviews all proposed physical alterations to designated features of landmark properties.

The Landmarks Board is composed of two architects, two historians, one structural engineer, one representative each from the fields of real estate and finance, one member from the City Planning Commission, a Get Engaged member (for young adults ages 18-29), and three members at-large. These recent openings are for the Real Estate position and a Historian position. All appointments are made by the Mayor, subject to City Council confirmation.

Board meetings are held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 3:30 p.m. The architect and historian board members also serve on the Board’s Architectural Review Committee (ARC). In general, board members must commit approximately 10 hours per month to Landmarks Board business.

Interested applicants must be Seattle residents, and board members serve without compensation. Those interested in being considered should send a letter of interest and resume by Tuesday, July 1, 2014. Electronic submissions are preferred, if possible.

Please email your letter and resume to: erin.doherty@seattle.gov
(reference the Landmarks Preservation Board in the subject line).

To submit a paper copy, address it to Erin Doherty, Landmark Preservation Board Coordinator, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, P.O. Box 94649, Seattle, WA 98124-4649. For more information, call Erin at (206) 684-0380.

The city of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the city’s boards and commissions. Women, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, young persons, senior citizens, persons of color, and immigrants are encouraged to apply.

Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Historic Preservation Program is responsible for the designation and protection of more than 400 historic structures, sites, objects, and vessels, as well as seven historic districts located throughout the city.
