The Oregon Heritage Commission will meet in Astoria July 29-30.

On July 29, Commissioners will gather at 12:30 p.m. to tour heritage efforts at the Astoria Column, Liberty Theatre, and Lewis & Clark National Park.

On July 30, a public business meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the Columbia River Maritime Museum conference room located at 1792 Marine Dr., Astoria 97103.

The Heritage Commission is comprised of nine people representing Oregon's heritage and geographical diversity who have been appointed by the Governor. There are nine advisory representatives from state agencies and statewide organizations. The mission of the Oregon Heritage Commission is to secure, sustain, and enhance Oregon's heritage by ensuring coordination of heritage initiatives by public and private organizations; advocacy on its behalf; education of the public about its extent and value; and promotion and celebration of its diversity.

Commission meetings are open to the public and their agendas include opportunities for public comment. The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities.
