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.
