About us

The Landmarks Commission (BLC) and the nine local historic district commissions are comprised of volunteers nominated by professional organizations and neighborhood groups. Find specifics about commissioner appointments in the Landmarks Commission's enabling legislation, and in each district's study report. All commissioners must be appointed by the Mayor and also require City Council confirmation. BLC staff support the commissions' work.

The BLC and City Archaeology Program are part of the City of Boston Environment Department, within the Environment, Energy and Open Space Cabinet.  Learn about how we work to protect Boston’s historic resources. Or go straight to the complete schedule of applications due by and hearing dates for all commissions.
