City Council seeks nominees for preservation commission

City Hall will accept the names of city resident nominees to be considered for Donalsonville Historic Preservation Commission through April 30

Last year, on the recommendation of Donalsonville City Manager Steven Hicks, the city council unanimously authorized the adoption of Ordinance 11-07-17 providing for the establishment of a Historic Preservation Commission for the City of Donalsonville.

The Ordinance provides for the appointment of three members who shall be residents of the City of Donalsonville. Appointees shall be persons who have demonstrated special interest, experience or education in the city’s history, architecture or the preservation of historic resources. City Hall will accept the names of nominees to be considered for commission from the public through Tuesday, April 30. Call 229-524-2118 to make a nomination or for additional information.

“The purpose and intent of this Ordinance is to establish a uniform procedure for use in providing for the protection, enhancement, perpetuation and use of places, districts, sites, buildings, structures, objects, and landscape features having a special historical, cultural or aesthetic interest or value, in accordance with the provisions of the Ordinance,” stated Hicks.

Upon the selection, approval and installation of commission members by the Mayor and Council, those members and plans for the commission will be announced.
