The Historic Preservation Board (HPB) is a seven-member citizen advisory committee that makes recommendations to the Downtown Development Committee, the Planning & Zoning Board, the Board of Adjustments, the Zoning Administrator and City Council. The HPB oversees historic preservation on a citywide basis. The HPB is responsible for hearing citizen comments and making recommendations on historic preservation zoning overlays for historic districts and historic landmarks (including archeological sites), as well as requests for demolition, new development within established historic districts, hear and decide appeals regarding proposed development, renovation, alterations, or additions to buildings or structures designated as historic. The HPB establishes and maintains the Mesa Historic Property Register and conducts studies for assessing the potential of buildings, structures, or areas for designation as historic sites or districts. The HPB also makes recommendations to the City Council regarding public policy development for the preservation of historic resources through the City.

As part of each meeting agenda, action may be taken on: historic zoning overlay matters, special use permits, design review cases regarding additions, changes or modifications to historic resources, historic preservation survey projects, applications for historic designation, and other matters affecting established historic resources.

During meetings, citizens may address the HPB on items pertaining to the agenda.
