[ARCHIVED] IHPRC Board Openings

Booth Theater

We currently have openings on the Independence Historic Preservation and Research Commission (IHPRC). Applications are due by Noon on April 16, 2021. 

The Independence Historic Preservation and Resource Commission shall consist of seven members who shall be appointed by the mayor subject to confirmation by a majority vote of the governing body of the city. Members whose terms have expired shall continue to serve until their successors have been appointed. The following qualifications shall apply to appointees to the IHPRC:

(1)All appointees shall be residents of the city.

(2)All appointees shall be persons who have demonstrated interest, knowledge or training in fields closely related to historic preservation, such as history, architecture, landscape architecture, architectural history, archeology, planning, real estate, law, finance, building trades, urban design and geography.

(3)Not less than three appointees shall be composed of persons who are engaged in or retired from preservation-related professions such as archeology, architectural history, conservation, cultural anthropology, curation, engineering, folklore, historic architecture, historic preservation planning, historic preservation and history; provided, however, that upon a demonstration that the required number of positions for preservation-related professionals could not be filled despite a reasonable effort to do so, the governing body may waive this requirement. What constitutes a reasonable effort to fill such positions shall take into consideration the possibility that the absence of certain preservation-related professions on the IHPRC may necessitate the retaining of consultants.
