The Historic Preservation Commission is charged with establishing a local historic preservation program, integrating historic preservation into local, state and federal planning and decision-making processes.
The historic preservation program is designed to promote the preservation of historic and prehistoric sites, structures, objects, buildings and historic districts. The Historic Preservation Commission is comprised of volunteers from Missoula's neighborhoods, businesses and preservation professionals, and was established by the Missoula City Council in 1989.
Professional members must possess professional experience in such fields as architecture, history, architectural history, landscape architecture, archaeology, city planning, preservation law, historic preservation, American studies, cultural geography, or cultural anthropology or a closely related field. Professional members must, to the extent possible, meet the Secretary of Interior's Professional Qualification Standards found at 36 C.F.R 61 and the standards listed in the Montana Certified Local Government Manual.
The downtown representative must work or reside in downtown Missoula as shown on the Historic Preservation Commission Geographic Region Map.
Historic Preservation Commission members are appointed by the City Council.
