BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  July 17, 2018 - Last BCC action.

 

Background:  The Baldwin County Historic Development Commission was created by Baldwin County Local Legislative Act No. 80-497 (1980), as amended by Act 89-960 (1989), as a board to have no less than eleven (11) members, appointed by the County Commission, to preserve and protect buildings of historic and architectural value within a Historic District(s), further, to foster and encourage preservation, restoration and utilization of buildings of historic and architectural value within a Historic District and develop and promote Historic District(s) as tourist attractions.

 

The Baldwin County Commission, at its regularly meeting on October 1, 2002, adopted and approved an amended Constitution and by-laws of the Baldwin County Historic Development Commission to provide such Board be composed of twelve (12) members.

 

Today, all members of the twelve (12) member Baldwin County Historic Development Commission serve four (4) years, overlapping terms each through election/appointment by the Baldwin County Commission, such terms beginning on the 3rd day of July in the year appointed/reappointed as specified in the Baldwin County Historic Development Commission’s Constitution and by-laws.

 

Staff finds that pursuant to Section 11 of Act No. 80-497, as amended by Act No. 89-960, coupled with an analysis of the Baldwin County Historic Development Commission’s Constitution and by-laws, that the only requirement for appointments to such Board be that each person appointed must be a resident of Baldwin County, Alabama.

 

With the only qualification for members of the Baldwin County Historic Development Board being that all members are residents of Baldwin County, Alabama, staff asserts that the nominees are qualified to be appointed to the Baldwin County Historic Development Commission.
