Preservation Board

Historic Board PhotoThe Preservation Board is a 9-member panel made up of 8 citizens and design professionals appointed by the Mayor for 4-year terms, and the Chairman of the Aldermanic Committee on Public Safety. Five positions are required to be filled by a registered architect; a registered engineer; a landscape architect or urban planner; a real estate broker; and an art historian or architectural historian.

The Preservation Board acts as an administrative law judge, governed by State law. The City Counselor represents the Board and its members and the Cultural Resources Office serves as staff for the Board.

The Preservation Board meets at 4:00 P.M. on the fourth Monday of every month in our offices at 1520 Market Street, in the second floor Boardroom. The Board may change its meeting time or date, or schedule a special meeting. These changes are published on this web page and posted in our office. Notification is sent to applicants, City officials and citizens on our mailing list.
For more information, contact the Board's Secretary, Adona Buford, at (314) 657-3865.


The Board hears applicant appeals of Cultural Resources Office decisions. Preservation Board decisions in City Historic Districts are binding by law and may be appealed only to the Circuit Court. Appeals regarding encroachments or public works are heard by the Board of Public Service; appeals from Board denials of demolition applications may be heard by the Planning Commission at the Commission's discretion.
