The City Council has established the HPAC to evaluate and recommend to the Edmonds City Council a plan to address the appropriate structure and measures for the preservation of historic building structures and other landmarks within the City of Edmonds.
Historic Preservation Advisory Committee (HPAC) was established by City Ordinance 3338 to:
• Inventory existing historic structures, sites, markers, and other items of historic significance.
• Review and comment on current City policy in relation to historic preservation.
• Review and comment on what policies, programs, regulations, codes, and incentives could be employed to encourage historic preservation.
• Evaluate the need for a permanent Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission.
The committee consists of eight members with each member chosen by the following entities: one member of the City’s Planning Board, City Council, Mayor’s staff, South Snohomish County Historical Society, the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, and three citizens, one of whom may be a commercial property owner, selected by the Mayor.
