Preservation of Redwood City’s historic resources is of great significance for those who live and work here today, and for the generations who will be here in the future.

The Historic Resources Advisory Committee advises the Planning Commission regarding the implementation of the City’s Historic Preservation Ordinance and recommends historic designation of local landmarks and districts, performs design review of changes to historic buildings, and is involved in other historic preservation-related activities.

The Planning Commission shall appoint a Historic Resources Advisory Committee to advise and make recommendations to the Commission in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter. The Committee shall consist of five (5) members who shall be appointed from, but not limited to, such professions, disciplines and interests as: members of the Redwood City Heritage Association and other preservation-related organizations; licensed architects and structural engineers; urban planners and landscape architects; attorneys and real estate experts; members of community groups and residents within historic districts, occupants of historic landmarks and owners of historic sites. Not less than four (4) members shall, at the time of their appointment and continuously during their incumbency, be residents and electors of the City.

The term of each member shall be three (3) years. An appointment to fill an unexpired term shall be for the remainder of such unexpired term.

The Historic Resources Advisory Committee shall hold regular meetings at least once a month. If a member of the Committee is absent from three (3) successive regular or noticed special meetings duly held by the Committee, except by permission of the Committee, the appointment of such member to the Committee shall be considered to be terminated; and the Committee shall give notice of such vacancy to the member so terminated and to the Planning Commission.
