About the Historic Resources Advisory Board

The Historic Resources Advisory Board is an eight-member (including one youth member) citizen advisory body appointed by the City Council. It meets each month to promote and foster the historic, educational, architectural, cultural, economic, and general welfare of the public through the identification, preservation, restoration, and protection of those structures, sites, objects, and districts of historic and cultural interest within the city.

Notices of meetings are published in the City's monthly newsletter -- Hello LO and on the Community Calendar found on the City's web page.  Agendas are also posted on the first floor bulletin board in City Hall, the Adult Community Center and Library.
