One opening must be filled by a candidate who resides in the town’s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The other seat is open to anyone who lives in Wake Forest or its ETJ.
Professionals with historic preservation expertise are especially encouraged to apply.The online advisory board application is available through Monday, Feb. 28. Anyone without access to a computer is invited to complete the application by using a computer kiosk in the lobby of Town Hall, 301 S.
