Come July, the Historic District Commission will have an open spot. 

The Commission regularly meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. (usually for 1 ½ - 2 hours) with an occasional special meeting and periodic opportunities for training in preservation issues. The primary functions of the Commission are to review requests for Certificates of Appropriateness submitted by residents and contractors for proposed work on the exterior of properties within the historic districts; review of properties throughout the community as to historic significance and potential designation under the preservation ordinance; and to learn about and educate the community about the importance and significance of our historic resources.

If you are interested in serving on the Commission you can apply by filling out this application. If you are interested, but would like to learn more before applying, and/or if you have any questions please reach out to Phil Meyer at p.meyer@cityofholland.com or give him a call at 616-355-1362.
