Job Opening: Landmarks Preservation Board Coordinator, City of Seattle

From the City of Seattle job opportunities website: 

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods (DON) works to bring government closer to community members across Seattle by engaging them in civic participation, helping them become empowered to make positive contributions to their communities, and by involving more of Seattle’s under-represented residents, including communities of color and immigrants, in civic discourse, processes and opportunities. The department motto is “Strengthening Seattle by actively engaging all communities.”

The Historic Preservation Program is responsible for the designation and protection of more than 450 historic structures, sites, objects, and vessels, as well as eight historic districts throughout Seattle. By involving residents in maintaining high standards for rehabilitation and new construction, the program allows them to recognize and keep the quality, character, and uniqueness of their neighborhoods.

DON is seeking a Landmarks Preservation Board Coordinator, who will report to the Historic Preservation Officer, to support the Landmarks Preservation Board throughout the nomination or Certificate of Approval process for sites primarily in neighborhoods outside the downtown area.
