Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) – One Vacancy

The HPC’s primary functions are to research, obtain public input, deliberate, and submit advice and recommendations to the Town of Coupeville and Island County; and to assist their Planning Departments in issuing Certificates of Appropriateness for projects within the Reserve based on consistency with the Design Guidelines for Ebey’s’ Landing National Historical Reserve and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.

The HPC consists of seven members; three appointed by the Town of Coupeville, three appointed by Island County and one joint appointment.  HPC members serve three-year terms.  They meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and sometimes in special workshop sessions as needed.  Meetings are held in the Island County Commissioners’ Hearing Room in Coupeville.

Applicants for the HPC should live within Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve (Reserve) and have a demonstrated interest or experience in, or knowledge of, history, historic preservation, architecture, design, landscape architecture, cultural landscapes, archaeology, and/or related disciplines.  For Town of Coupeville appointments, special consideration is given to residents of the Town.  Preference may also be given to applicants with a background in farming and applicants who own a contributing building, structure, or commercial business within the Reserve.

Position 1 is a three-year term ending December 31, 2020, and is currently vacant.  Because this vacancy has occurred mid-term, the Town Council will appoint a citizen to finish the last year of this three-year term.  Commissioners may request to be re-appointed for subsequent terms.

To apply for the Historic Preservation Commission, turn in a letter of interest stating your relevant experience and history of community service along with a Town Volunteer Application to Town Hall.  This position will remain posted until filled.
