VENTURA, Calif. – The Board of Supervisors is seeking applications for two at-large board members to join the governing body for a four-year term on the Cultural Heritage Board (CHB). The positions serve as part of a seven-member board that helps to oversee and works to preserve historic resources in the unincorporated areas of the County of Ventura. The Clerk of the Board’s office is accepting applications until Monday, April 17, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
The CHB Program recognizes historic properties and promotes the identification, inventory, preservation, and protection of these resources for present and future generations. All such efforts are taken to make the residents and visitors of Ventura County mindful of the rich historical, cultural, and natural heritage of the County. Active members of the CHB hold public meetings in-person on a bi-monthly basis and residents of the county are encouraged to attend.
Established in 1966, the Ventura County Cultural Heritage Board works to preserve and protect public and private historic, cultural, and natural resources of special historical or aesthetic character or interest. Applications are highly encouraged from professionals in the disciplines of architecture, history, architectural history, planning, archaeology, or other historic preservation-related disciplines, such as urban planning, American studies, American civilization, cultural geography, or cultural anthropology, or applicants who have demonstrated special interest, competence, experience, or knowledge in these areas.
