The five members of the Board are volunteers appointed by the City Council for three year terms. Its members, like many Anacortes residents, believe that our  old buildings and homes are among our city’s most valuable assets. The  major responsibility of the Board is to identify and encourage the  conservation of the City's historic resources by initiating and  maintaining a register of historic places and reviewing proposed changes  to register properties. The Board serves as the city’s primary resource  in matters of historic planning and preservation and also works to  raise community awareness of Anacortes’ historic resources. Compilation  of the Historic Inventory Database of properties is one such activity.  Preservation Awards recognizing significant contributors is another.
