ORGANIZATIONThe St. George Historic Preservation Commission consists of seven members who are residents of St. George. They are appointed to staggered four-year term by the mayor of St. George. At least two members of the commission are from the professions of history, architecture, architectural history, archaeology, planning, urban planning, American studies, American civilization, cultural geography or cultural anthropology.
Officers are selected by the commissioners who also establish rules for conduct of the commission. Meetings are held at least twice a year and are open to the public. All resolutions, proceedings and actions are documente in minutes which are available for public inspection.
The Commission helps determine if a building is eligible to be a city landmark site. It also helps preserves landmark sites and historic buildings by making recommendations on what could be done to a structure to fit the owner's needs rather than demolishing it.
