The mission of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission is to identify, preserve, protect, and promote Raleigh’s historic resources.
Membership and Meetings
The Raleigh Historic Development Commission (RHDC) has been designated the official advisory body to the Raleigh City Council on historic preservation matters.
The twelve-member Commission makes all decisions meeting as a whole, unless it explicitly authorizes a committee or officer to act for it in a specific instance. The Commission manages its work and receives recommendations for action through five standing committees: Executive, Certificate of Appropriateness, Community Awareness, Nominations, and Research. More detail on the Commission’s governance operations is contained in the Bylaws and Rules of Procedure, linked below.
