Waldsmith selected for Historical Commission

From an unusually crowded field of candidates, the Grass Valley City Council on Tuesday selected Gwynn Waldsmith to serve on the city’s Historical Commission.

Waldsmith was one of six applicants for a single vacancy on the advisory commission. City officials said it was a surprise to see so many residents interested in the position. The five-member commission advises the City Council on matters pertaining to the city’s historical buildings and resources and works to honor residents who protect historical resources.

Waldsmith has a bachelor’s degree in history from Chico and is working toward a master’s degree in historic preservation. She is a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Although she lives outside Grass Valley, city officials said it is allowed for her to serve on the city board and still live in an unincorporated part of the county.
