Tacoma City Council adopted a resolution Tuesday that appoints and/or re-appoints five people to serve on the City of Tacoma’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission is an 11-member volunteer commission which oversees the establishment and regulation of landmarks, local historic districts, proposed name changes for public facilities, and certain property tax incentives.

The City of Tacoma announced a call for applications in October.

On Nov. 18, Tacoma City Council’s Neighborhoods and Housing Committee interviewed candidates seeking to fill two professional positions, two architect positions, and two at-large positions on the commission. The applicants included Christopher Granfield (Professional), Jonah Jensen (Architect), Lysa Schloesser (Architect), Kathy Ursich (At-Large), Jeff Williams (Professional), and Duke York (At-Large). The committee then made its recommendation for appointments to the full city council.

The action taken by Tacoma City Council this week re-appoints Jensen to an architect position to serve a three-year term beginning on Jan. 1, 2014 and ending on Dec. 31, 2016; appoints Schloesser to an architect position to serve a term ending on Dec. 31, 2014; appoints Granfield to an at-large position to serve a term ending on Dec. 31, 2015; re-appoints York to a professional position to serve a three-year term beginning on Jan. 1, 2014 and ending on Dec. 31, 2016; and appoints Williams to a professional position to serve a three-year term beginning on Jan. 1, 2014 ending on Dec. 31, 2016.
