From the Wellesley Historical Commission:
The Wellesley Historical Commission, a seven-member volunteer board of Town government, is seeking historically-minded residents to fill several recent vacancies. The WHC is also seeking non-voting associate members to participate actively in discussions and assist us in advancing our mission.
The WHC is the primary advocate for the protection of Wellesley’s historic properties, both public and private. Our mission is to ensure that the historic structures and spaces that define the character of Wellesley are not lost for future generations. We frequently collaborate with Town boards and departments, builders, realtors, and residents, providing expert advice on projects involving historic resources to ensure that growth can coincide with preservation. We also advocate for public bylaws and private actions that encourage the preservation, restoration, and innovative reuse of historic properties.
You can learn more about our recent activities — including establishing new Historic Districts, advising Town boards on historic preservation projects, and expanding our signature historic house plaque program — at www.wellesleyhistoricalcommission.org.
Members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen for a three-year term. Knowledge of architecture and construction, public relations, historic preservation, or government is particularly welcome, but not required. If interested, please email a brief statement with your interests, qualifications, and contact information to [email protected] by Thursday, October 22. We look forward to interviewing candidates on the evening of Thursday, October 29.
Tad Heuer, Chairman
Wellesley Historical Commission
