The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission was created by joint resolution of the Charlotte City Council and the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners in July 1973.
The Commission has twelve members. The County Commission appoints six Commissioners. The Charlotte City Council appoints four Commissioners. The Mayor of Charlotte appoints two Commissioners. Commissioners can serve no more than two consecutive three-year terms.
The Commission meets the second Monday of each month at 6 p.m. in its meeting room at 2100 Randolph Road in Charlotte. The Commission does not meet in July.
The Commission has three principal committees. The Design Review Committee, the Projects Committee, and the Survey Committee. The Design Review Committee makes recommendations on the appropriateness of material changes to historic landmarks. The Survey Committee makes recommendations on prospective designations of historic landmarks. The Projects Committee makes recommendations on the purchase and sale of property.
The Commission is considering whether to attempt to preserve the Charles E. Barnhardt House at 2733 Country Club Lane in Charlotte. The house was designed by Charlotte architect Martin E. Boyer, Jr. and was completed in 1938.
On September 26th, Mike Ogburn visited the Barnhardt House to begin the appraisal process.
