Hi All,
Please read and/or forward the information below from the website of the
Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission.  I'd like to encourage
volunteers to apply to become Commissioners.  It is a way to add your voice
to the dialog of how important it is to preserve the County's historic
places that still have decades of productive use as historic buildings,
community, business and residential spaces.  This includes public works as
well - bridges and roadway and agricultural landscapes.   There are many
places, buildings and structures that can be re-purposed with thoughtful and
creative thinking, preserving their historical character, without building
out into our farmlands and creating more costly infrastructure.
The Commission serves as the public voice to the County Council and must
take a proactive role.  It helps landowners and historic structure owners
recognize the value of their historic properties and now also decides on the
application of the Community Heritage Program - recipients of County grants
that fund heritage programs throughout the County.  Recent examples include
the Granite Falls Historical Mapping Project and the Western Heritage
Center. If you live in a City that has its own Commission - support their
work as well - (Edmonds, Snohomish, Everett)

Please consider adding your voice to this group and contact Wendy Becker
(see the information below.)
