WARNER ROBINS -- The first members of the newly formed Warner Robins Historic Preservation Commission were named at Mondays council meeting.
City Council agreed unanimously to appoint Marilyn Ashmore, Arthur Howard, Jim Miles, Brian Russ and Bobby Sharp to the commission. Ashmore and Howard will serve three-year terms. Miles and Russ will serve two-year terms. Sharp will serve one year.
After a month of questions from council about what purpose the commission would serve, council voted Sept. 3 to create the board. The idea is for the commission to ensure certain historical features, such as the military housing on which Warner Robins was built, are not eliminated.
The commission will come up with historic districts it wants to protect and the procedures the commission will follow to do so. City Council has the final approval of both.
