Historic Preservation Commission

The historic preservation commission (HPC) is a five-person body which primarily makes decisions on changes proposed to historic properties listed on the city’s local historic register. The HPC will also act as an advisory body to the city council on matters regarding historic preservation, including listing new properties on the register.


The City of Gig Harbor is one of 87 local jurisdictions that participate in the state’s certified local government (CLG) program. This program is managed by the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. “Certification” of a CLG is determined by the National Park Service consistent with the National Historic Preservation Act.

The HPC was established on June 12, 2023, by Ordinance 1513. View Gig Harbor Municipal Code (GHMC) Title 2.26 for more information on the historic preservation commission.


The historic preservation commission meets quarterly (dates and times to be determined) or as needed.
