New Members Sought for Landmarks Preservation Board

Mayor Mike McGinn is seeking two new members to serve on the Landmarks Preservation Board in an At-large position and the Structural Engineer position.

The 12-member Landmarks Preservation Board makes recommendations to Seattle City Council for landmark designation and reviews all proposed physical alterations to designated features of landmark properties.

The Board is composed of two architects, two historians, one structural engineer, one representative each from the fields of real estate and finance, one member from the City Planning Commission, a Get Engaged member (a position for young adults ages 18-29), and three members at-large. All appointments are made by the Mayor, subject to City Council confirmation.

Board meetings are held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 3:30 p.m. The architect and historian members also serve on the Board's Architectural Review Committee. Board members generally must commit approximately 10 hours per month to Board business.

Interested applicants must be Seattle residents, and board members serve without compensation. Those interested in being considered should send a letter of interest and resume by May 10, 2013. Electronic submissions are preferred, if possible.

Please email your letter and resume to: Sarah.Sodt@seattle.gov (reference Landmarks Preservation Board in the subject line).

To submit a paper copy, mail it to: Sarah Sodt, Landmark Preservation Board Coordinator, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, PO Box 94649, Seattle, WA 98124-4649. For more information, please call Sarah Sodt at (206) 615-1786.
