Historic Resources Board

Meeting Times and Dates

The Board meets as needed on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. in Room B-7 (lower level) of City Hall. All meetings are open to the public.


The purpose of the Historic Resources Board is to encourage and promote programs and activities that enhance public awareness of historic resources. The Historic Resources Board acts as an advisory body to City Council as well as a liaison to Council for local, state and federal groups and agencies whose interest involves historic issues.


The Historic Resources Board was established in 1987 as an eleven member advisory board to City Council providing guidance and support on matters pertaining to historic issues. The Board advises on issues of preservation of historic, commercial, and residential structures and sites, cooperating with the Planning Commission and the Community Services Commission to insure that historic preservation and services are considered in the planning for future development of the community.

The Historic Resources Board also presents programs reflecting historical aspects of Huntington Beach. Walking Tours of the Downtown Historic Core and the Discovery Well Dedication panel discussion are among the programs organized and presented by the Board. In 2004, in conjunction with the centennial celebration of the Fourth of July Parade, the Board presented Moments In Time: A 100 Year History of Huntington Beach in the galleries of the Huntington Beach Art Center.


In the event a member retires or is unable to complete his term, an appointment shall be made to fill the remainder of the unexpired term. To apply to become a member, please fill out the Boards & Commission Application.
