The commission conducts public hearings on applications for landmark designation, reviews alteration certificates and applications for relocating historically designated structures and makes recommendations to the City Council.

Lakewood Advisory Commission
This commission has several positions, which will be open until filled. In their advisory roles to City Council, members research specific issues of interest to residents and provide recommendations to council on potential action. Members should plan to attend the full commission meeting and a committee meeting each month. Applicants must also attend (virtually or by watching previously recorded meetings at LakewoodSpeaks.org) both a full commission meeting and an individual committee meeting before applying.
