Historic Site Preservation Board Members – 2018
The seven-member Palm Springs Historic Site Preservation Board, established by the Palm Springs City Council in May 1981, identifies, nominates, and recommends potential historic sites and districts to the City Council while fostering public awareness and appreciation of the City’s rich cultural and architectural
heritage. Board members are appointed by the City Council to serve in two or three-year terms. To be eligible for appointment to the Board, an individual must have demonstrated knowledge and interest in the cultural, socio-economic, architectural or archaeological history of the Palm Springs area either through experience, training, education or occupation.
The Historic Site Preservation Board’s goals are to stabilize and improve buildings, structures or areas which are considered to be of historical, architectural, archaeological or ecological value, to foster civic beauty, to strengthen the local economy and to promote the use of specific buildings for the education and welfare of the citizens of Palm Springs.
