Tulsa Preservation Commission Members
The Tulsa Preservation Commission is a nine-member board of the City of Tulsa. Its membership is designed to reflect a broad variety of professional interests and specialties, such as architecture, real estate, and history, and to balance those interests with the needs of Tulsa’s historic neighborhoods and landmarks.
Members are appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. Commissioners serve staggered three-year terms and attend two meetings each month, in addition to training and committee assignments. Ex-officio members are non-voting and appointed by their respective commissions.
If you are interested in serving on the Tulsa Preservation Commission, please review our prospective member flyer and contact the Mayor’s Office at (918) 596-2100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be a resident of the City of Tulsa and meet professional or property ownership requirements. A demonstrated interest in preserving Tulsa’s historic resources for the benefit of the greater community is required.
