Who are we and what do we do?

The Sandpoint Historic Preservation Commission is a group of devoted local citizens concerned for improving a protecting the city's unique historic and cultural resources.  We help facilitate the identification, evaluation, preservation, restoration, protection, and enhancement of our historical, cultural, and archaeological interests.  It is the Historic Preservation Commission's hope to encourage and engage the preservation of historic architecturally significant properties, promote their potential, practical, and useful opportunities and to establish compatible development within areas of historic properties, neighborhoods, and districts.

When and where do we meet?

The Historic Preservation Commission meets the third Tuesday of every month, 11am in the Council Chambers at Sandpoint City Hall.
