Historic Preservation Advisory Committee
The Matthews Historic Preservation Advisory Committee focuses on the preservation of properties and artifacts, education of the community, and partnerships with municipal and civic organizations, including the Matthews Historical Foundation and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission, to advance the cause of historic preservation.
The Committee is composed of twelve members appointed by the Matthews Board of Commissioners, three of whom are board members of the Matthews Historical Foundation. A member does not necessarily have to be a resident of the Town of Matthews. A staff member acts as liaison to the Committee.
Meetings of the Historic Preservation Advisory Committee are held on the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall. All meetings are open to the public and conform to the North Carolina Open Meetings Law.
Members of the Historic Preservation Advisory Committee serve two-year terms, without a limit on the number of terms a member may serve.
Any member, who shall fail to attend at least 75% of the regular and special meetings during any one-year period, may be removed. The Chairperson shall notify the Matthews Town Board of Commissioners of any member who shall so fail to attend. The vacancy can be filled, upon recommendation of the Committee liaison and Chairperson, by the Matthews Town Board of Commissioners.
