Avondale Estates is looking for someone to fill a vacancy on the city’s Historic Preservation Commission and Architectural Review Board.

“The HPC/ARB is a volunteer board of residents with an interest in architecture, history, planning, landscape and/or historic preservation-related disciplines,” the announcement from the city says. “As per City policy all openings are advertised to the community. Citizens provide great insight and knowledge through various Boards and Commissioners of the City of Avondale Estates.

“The ARB is charged with regulating the design of all non-residential zoning districts outside the Historic District. It strives to ensure that new development remains compatible with the traditional architecture of the adjacent properties. The HPC administers the City’s historic preservation ordinance.”

The city’s historic district joined the National Register of Historic Places in December 1986, according to the city’s website.

The five commission members are appointed by the city’s Board of Mayor and Commissioners for three-year terms. The board meets on the first Monday of each month.

“If you are interested in serving as a member, please fill out the application located on the City website,” the announcement from the city says. “If you have any questions, please contact Gina Hill at 404-294-5400 or ghill@avondaleestates.org. Applicants can submit their applications to Gina in person at City Hall, 21 North Avondale Plaza, by email, or fax it to 404-299-8137.”
