Boone Forming 'Cultural Resources Board' PDF Print
Written by Town of Boone Release   
Thursday, 03 May 2012 05:05

The Boone Town Council recently adopted a motion to create a new cultural resources board. The Town of Boone currently owns and supports several cultural resources and facilities, including the Jones House, Horn in the West, downtown post office, Rivers’ House, Appalachian Theater, and several parks and monuments. For many years, these facilities and town-sponsored programs have been operated under different rules and procedures. The council’s goal is for the new board to recommend policies and procedures for all town-sponsored cultural activities and facilities, as well as bring awareness to our community regarding the extensive cultural opportunities sponsored by the town.
The Cultural Resources Board will be composed of nine members appointed by the Boone Town Council. Appalachian State University, Downtown Boone Development Association, Boone Historic Preservation Commission, Southern Appalachian Historical Association, Watauga Arts Council and the Jones House Advisory Board will all be invited to submit two nominations each, from which one will be selected. Other cultural interest parties will also be invited to submit nominations for three open seats. Appointments for the new board will be effective July 1, 2012.
