Forsyth County Historic Resources Commission
The Forsyth County Historic Resource Commission (HRC) is a twelve-member citizen board created in 2002 and appointed jointly by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, the City of Winston-Salem Council, the Kernersville Board of Aldermen, and the Village of Clemmons Council. The Commission's role is to protect and enrich the County's cultural, historical, architectural, and archaeological heritage through the identification, designation, and preservation of historic resources. In addition to administering local historic districts and landmarks, the HRC is involved in various activities relating to historic resources throughout the County, such as architectural inventories, historic markers, and National Register nominations. The Commission is served by the professional planning staff of the City-County Planning Board.
The twelve member HRC consists of five appointed representatives from Forsyth County, five from the City of Winston-Salem, one from the Town of Kernersville, and one from the Village of Clemmons. Each newly appointed member serves for a term of four years, and is eligible for re-appointment. Members are sought positions that specify various types of expertise, including architecture, design, planning, surveying, history, ownership of property in historic districts or landmarks, and at-large citizens.
The Commission meets the first Wednesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. in the Public Meeting Room, Fifth Floor, City Hall South, 100 East First Street, Winston-Salem.
