The project will provide a focus on the economic, geographic, historical and cultural elements that significantly shaped the physical development of the county’s land use patterns and built environment in the mid-20th century, including building types, characteristics, materials, and architectural styles associated with the mid-century, post-war era.

Approximately 40-50 of the most significant commercial, institutional, and residential buildings from this era will be surveyed and added to the inventory of historic sites in the county. This will assist property owners who may wish to restore and preserve their properties or nominate them to a historic register in the future. It will also raise awareness of and need for preservation of buildings constructed during this era.

The Historic Preservation Commission raises awareness of the county’s historic and cultural resources and serves as the county’s primary resource on historic preservation. For more about the historic preservation program and commission, please visit www.clark.wa.gov/planning/historic.
