Our very own Duke York has become a Commissioner for the Tacoma Landmarks Preservation Commission. Congratulations! The Landmarks Commission reviews and approves changes to registered landmarks and buildings that are located in historic districts. The commission also reviews nominations and advises the city council regarding additions to the register of landmarks. There are currently 11 members on the commission. Five districts make up the historical areas of Tacoma. Two more areas are in the process of application, the west slope district and the wedge neighborhood district. The commission has a very informative web site. http://www.tacomaculture.com/.
We are currently working on the Olof Carlson home in the Old Tacoma Historic District. You can follow our project at http://www.theadditionproject.blogspot.com/
