The Preservation Board is a 9-member panel made up of 8 citizens and design professionals appointed by the Mayor for 4-year terms, and the Chairman of the Aldermanic Committee on Public Safety, or their appointee. Five positions have specific requirements: a registered architect; a registered engineer; a landscape architect or urban planner; a real estate broker; and an art historian or architectural historian.
The Board acts as an administrative law judge, governed by State law. The City Counselor represents the Board and the Cultural Resources Office serves as its staff.
The Preservation Board meets at 4:00 P.M. on the fourth Monday of every month in our offices at 1520 Market Street, in the second floor Boardroom. The Board may change its meeting time or date, or schedule a special meeting. These changes are published on this web page and posted in our office. Notification is sent to applicants, City officials and citizens on our mailing list.
For more information, contact the Board's secretary, Bennett Anderson, at (314) 657-3865.
