The Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Aldermen is seeking resident nominees to fill a vacancy on the Spring Hill Historic Commission.
Historic Commission member Bill Alsup recently vacated the seat after retiring from the Tennessee Children’s Home, where he conducted public tours of the antebellum Ferguson Hall, a historically-designated property. Commission members are required to be a resident of Spring Hill; own property within the city; or own, or be a representative of, a City of Spring Hill historically-designated property.
The five-member commission exists to promote and preserve the character of life in the city through educational and cultural awareness while providing a sense of commitment and continuity between the past, present and future. The commission makes recommendations to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on local historic issues and designations of historically significant properties.
The commission meets at 6 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month in the conference room at Spring Hill City Hall, 199 Town Center Parkway. The open at-large seat has a three-year term and, by ordinance, is appointed by the mayor.
Interested applicants should email a brief statement to Mayor Rick Graham’s administrative assistant, Amanda Knobloch, at firstname.lastname@example.org, expressing interest in the position, including a summary vision for why the nomination should be considered, and/or any relevant background or experience. Applications are due to City Hall by 4:30 p.m. March 11, 2016.
