Crystal Lovett was named the Historic Preservation Commission by the Columbia City Council on August 15, 2011, according to a report in the Columbia Daily Tribune. Brent Gardner was renamed to the Commission at the same meeting.
The Historic Preservation Commission is charged with identifying historically significant structures, helping in various ways to preserve historic properties. Each year, the HPC names properties to its Notable Properties List to highlight significant historic properties. In the past, the properties have included homes, streets, cemeteries and even a stable.
