Commission helps District manage and implement heritage conservation planning

The Mission Community Heritage Commission is looking for local applicants with “strong ties to the community” to put in a two-year term on their team.

The commission helps the District’s councillors manage and implement heritage conservation planning and activity.

Preferred applicants will have skills in heritage, architecture, planning or other relevant areas or be willing to undertake training with the support of the commission.

The chosen applicant must be willing to serve in a volunteer role, conduct heritage-related research, attend eight meetings a year, and commit three to five additional hours each month, with the exception of summer.

The commission’s membership is appointed by council, and those wishing to apply should submit an online application or contact planning@mission.ca for a paper application.
