The Vernon Township Historic Preservation Commission was established to carry out advisory, educational and informational functions that promote historic preservation in the township. It also acts in an advisory capacity to the land use board on matters related to historic sites and development applications, the master plan and the township’s capital improvement program.
The membership is made up of persons who are interested in and qualified to contribute to the preservation of historic buildings, structures and sites. Members fall into one of three classifications:
- Class A: knowledgeable in building design and construction or in architectural history
- Class B: knowledgeable or have demonstrated an interest in local history
- Class C: township residents who hold no other municipal office, position or employment, except for membership on the land use board
In total, the commission consists of seven members and two alternates. The enabling ordinance calls for there to be at least one member each from Class A and Class B and further, allows for up to three members to be non-residents. Members are appointed by the mayor and serve four year terms; alternates serve two year terms.
