Historic Advisory Board


The Historic Advisory Board considers all issues involving historic preservation in the city and makes recommendations to the Council.


The voting Board is composed of seven members serving two-year terms. A minimum five-year residency is required for membership.

A five member non-voting subcommittee assists in project development and implementation. Subcommittee members have a five-year residency requirement and attend all Board meetings. Appointments are made in December.

Current voting members include: Judith Howard, Karen Esberger, John Holveck, Christina Chambers, Kenneth Branscome, Billie Hutson, and Melissa Pegram. Non-voting members include: Leigh Fields, Kellye Osborne, Deborah Keyes, and Jimmie Mitchell.


The Board meets quarterly (February, May, August & November), on the third Thursday of the month at 5:00 pm in City Hall.


The City Council's policy is to limit membership to one board/commission at a time in order to provide an opportunity for service and involvement to as many citizens as possible. Training is available to all new appointees.
