What is the Historic Preservation Review Board?

The 15-member board consists of nine professionals in the fields of architecture, archaeology, art history, and history; and six professionals in related fields, including landscape architecture, law, urban and regional planning, and real estate. Board members serve on one of three committees: Architecture, History or Anthropology.
