The City of St. Albans contains a wealth of historic buildings and sites – they are a major part of what makes our community special.  At the same time, the City’s inventories of historic places are now more than 30 years old.  The City has created a Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) to play a critical role in preserving our City’s knowledge of its historic resources.  The HPC is a board of volunteers that meets quarterly and otherwise as needed.

Meeting Location: St. Albans City Hall, 100 North Main Street.

If you cannot attend in person: Link for remote connection

Meeting times:  The HPC meets at least four times a year, typically on 2nd Tuesdays at 6:00 PM.  Those interested in meetings and boards are advised to follow the St. Albans City Facebook Page, join the St. Albans City Front Porch Forum, or look for public postings in City Hall.
