The Historical Resources Board is the appointed body with authority over historical resources in the City of San Diego. Duties and responsibilities of the Board, as listed in PDF icon Section 111.0206 of the San Diego Municipal Code, include designating individual historical sites, establishing historical districts and reviewing development projects that may affect historical resources. The Board prepares an annual report of its activities and participates in many other voluntary historic preservation programs and events in the various communities of San Diego.

Historical Resource Board members are volunteers appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. Board members are subject to the California Political Reform Act and the City's Ethics Ordinance and are required to file Statements of Economic Interest. They must disclose any conflicts of interest and recuse himself or herself from the meeting if necessary.

Historical Resource Board members are also subject to due process requirements and must conduct meetings in an impartial manner. Therefore, it is inappropriate to contact a Board member to discuss any item that will come before them in a meeting as an action item. If such contact occurs, the Board member may be subject to recusal from that item.
