Appointed by the City Council, the seven-member Board 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. The HSPB typically meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. 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. See Chapter 8.05 of the Municipal Code for additional information.
