Historic Districts Commission Seeks Member for Appointment

The Sudbury Historic Districts Commission is currently seeking residents of the community with historic preservation backgrounds, architectural experience, and/or are living within a historic district to serve as a member of the Commission. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings or as needed. Meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month.

The purpose of the Historic Districts Commission is to preserve and protect buildings, places, and other areas of historic or architectural significance. The four historic districts currently in existence – The Town Center, The Wayside Inn District, the King Philip District, and the George Pitts Tavern District – are subject to restrictions and controls under Chapter 40 of the Acts of 1963 administered by the Historic Districts Commission. The Commission reviews applications for exterior changes and follows specific guidelines for architectural and color features of buildings, landscaping, stone walls, signs, etc., located within the historic districts.

All interested residents are welcome to submit a Volunteer Application. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. All members require appointment by the Sudbury Select Board. The position is for a five-year term.
