Historic Preservation Commission

On November 19, 1990, the Mukilteo City Council established a Mukilteo Historic Preservation Commission that set forth procedures for the identification, evaluation, designation and preservation of historic places in the City for future generations.

Role of the Historic Preservation Commission

The Commission’s role is to:

  • Safeguard the heritage of the City of Mukilteo as represented by those buildings, districts, objects, sites and structures which reflect significant elements of Mukilteo’s history.

    The original Rose Hill School built in 1893. Rose Hill eventually became Rosehill as it is known today.

  • Foster civic and neighborhood pride in their beauty and accomplishments of the past, and sense of identity based on the Mukilteo history.
  • Stabilize or improve the aesthetic and economic vitality and values of such sites, improvements and objects.
  • Assist, encourage and provide incentives to private owners for preservation, restoration, redevelopment and use of outstanding historic buildings, districts, objects, sites and structures.
  • Promote and facilitate the early identification and resolution of conflicts between preservation of historic resources and alternative land uses.
  • Conserve valuable material and energy resources by ongoing use and maintenance of the existing built environment.

Historic Preservation Commission Members

The Commission consists of seven members, two of which shall be professionals who have experience in identifying, evaluating and protecting historic resources and have a background or knowledge of history, architecture, historic preservation, planning, law and real estate. These professionals do not need to be residents of Mukilteo; the five at-large members must be. Terms are staggered: three members are appointed to a 3-year term, three members are appointed to a 2-year term, and one member to a one-year term.

Public Comments

The Historic Preservation Commission appreciates hearing from the public about items on its agenda or other City matters. Comments regarding items on the agenda will be taken when that agenda item is heard.  Speakers are asked to state their name and city of residence for the record, and to limit their comments to three (3) minutes or less. All remarks shall be addressed to the Commission as a body and not to any specific Commissioner.  In keeping with the Council’s rules on public comments (Rule 10), all speakers are asked to be courteous in their language.

If you are unable to participate during a meeting in person or remotely, written public testimony must be received by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting and will become part of the permanent record.

Please submit public comments to jreyes@mukilteowa.gov or mail/drop off at City Hall (11930 Cyrus Way, Mukilteo, WA 98275).
