Boulder City’s Historic Preservation Committee has a new member — a new resident with expertise in historic preservation.
The City Council on Oct. 13 appointed Christina Frausto, who moved to Boulder City one month ago, to the committee, which is setting architectural guidelines for building in the historic district. A position came open after member Sabina Duke missed three meetings. Committee members are automatically removed after missing three meetings.
Frausto, who will complete Duke’s three-year term on the Historic Preservation Committee, is a cultural historian who recently retired to Boulder City from Claremont Colleges’ Center for Cultural and Social Issues in Southern California, where she was assistant director according to her application. She also has been a real-estate appraiser specializing in historic homes.
She served as a board member for the Inland Valley Historical Society, where she wrote grants as well as doing research on historic sites and publishing informational brochures and the society’s newsletter.
She also helped with the restoration, preservation and maintenance of the Fox Theater in Southern California and served on the Measure T Oversight Committee for the Ontario/Montclair School District.
She received a unanimous vote of the council.
The Historic Preservation was one of three committees the City Council made appointments for during the Oct. 13 meeting. The commission also reappointed Vern Burk, Frank Wilson and Maryann Wainwright to the Charter Commission and Jack Gaal to the Combined Board of Appeals. Burk, Wilson and Wainwright will serve three-year terms, and Gaal a four-year term.
