Gov. Mitch Daniels and Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard have selected the members of the Courthouse Preservation Advisory Commission. The commission will advise county officials on caring for Indiana's historic courthouses and provide recommendations on how they can be preserved.

Chief Justice Shepard will serve as commission chair and appoint a judge to the commission. Other positions are as specified by the 2008 law: as licensed architect, Ron Ross of Fort Wayne; as engineer, Fritz Herget of Indianapolis; as architectural historian, Diana Hawes of Bloomington; as county commission member, Kathy Beumer of Randolph County; as local community foundation representative, Brad Bumgardner; and as member of the Association of Indiana Counties, David Decker of Terre Haute.

Ex officio members are Chief Justice Shepard; director of the Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology Dr. James A. Glass; president of Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana Marsh Davis; and executive director of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs David Terrell.

The commission will provide county officials with assessments of historic courthouse conditions and information on rehabilitation and preservation plans. It will also submit a report to the General Assembly by August 2011 that assesses the importance of preserving courthouses, investigates the need for rehabilitation and maintenance of these structures; and studies the needs of county officials in planning for restoration, rehabilitation, and maintenance of the courthouses.

The commission's first meeting is at 1:30 p.m. April 8 in Conference Room 5, Indiana Government Center South, 401 W. Washington St., Indianapolis.
