The City Council adopted the Historic Preservation ordinance on August 12, 2014 creating the Millwood Historic Preservation Commission. Click here for the ordinance.

The Commission meets monthly on the third Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at the Millwood city hall.

The primary responsibilities of the historic preservation commission are:

  • to identify and actively encourage the conservation of the city’s historic resources by initiating and maintaining a register of historic places and reviewing proposed changes to register properties;
  • to raise community awareness of the city’s history and historic resources; and
  • to serve as the city’s primary resource in matters of history, historic planning, and preservation.


The commission serves as the local review board pursuant to RCW Ch. 84.26.
