Deadline extended for volunteers to serve on the Historic Review Board

Clackamas County Commissioners are extending the deadline for the four volunteers they need who are interested in serving on the county’s Historic Review Board. Representation is needed from the all areas of the county. Knowledge and/or expertise in historic preservation is encouraged. An attorney is needed on the board at this time. A contractor with expertise in construction techniques applied to historic structures is also needed.

Primary duties of the seven-member board are to review applications to alter or add to historic landmark structures, recommend the designation of new historic structures and review other land use applications involving historic landmarks. The HRB provides review and guidance to the county commissioner in matters related to historic landmarks.

The HRB meets the second Thursday evening each month, if needed, at the Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.

Interested individuals need to complete an application form. Applications may be completed and submitted online via the county’s website, http://www.clackamas.us/miscapp/application.jsp

Application deadline is Friday, Dec. 20.
