Sedona AZ (September 30, 2020) – The city of Sedona is seeking applicants for two seats on the Historic Preservation Commission as two current member terms approach expiration.
This voluntary body consists of seven citizens appointed and established by City Council to promote and protect Sedona’s historic character and identity. As an extension of the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office, the Sedona Historic Preservation Commission reviews the approval of restoration and improvements to designated historical landmark homes and properties. The Commission’s work is part of a larger statewide and national effort to preserve historic landmarks, which, in Sedona, relates mainly to the city’s pioneer heritage.
“Preserving Sedona’s history is an important element of the community fabric linking us all to the past pioneers of this great place. Volunteers on the Historic Preservation Commission play a key role in helping the city maintain this link to the past for current and future residents and visitors,” said Warren Campbell, assistant director of community development.
Applicants must demonstrate experience or knowledge in at least one of the following: history, architectural history, architecture, historic interiors, historic architecture, planning archaeology, historic archaeology, real estate, historic preservation law or any other historic preservation related field.
The term of service for each volunteer position is three years beginning Dec. 1, 2020 and expiring Nov. 30, 2023, or until a successor is appointed.
Applications may be picked up at the City Clerk’s Office at 102 Roadrunner Dr. or filled out via this PDF application.
Return completed applications to the City Clerk’s Office no later than noon on Oct. 22, 2020.
