The Streetscape History and Art Advisory Committee meets regularly to discuss nominations for tiles to be engraved in the completed portions of Auburn's streetscape. You can download an application or fill out an application online. This application must be submitted to the City Clerk.
Please review the tile criteria the SHAAC committee uses to determine which tiles are approved. Also view a tile example here.
The committee will only approve a maximum of 10 tiles a year, half of which must be of historical significance. The tile cost is $1,500 per engraved tile. The submission of a request does not guarantee that the request will be approved. Even if the SHAAC approves the submission, it is nothing more than a recommendation to the City Council, and it is ultimately the Council's decision whether or not to approve the submission. The SHAAC committee only reports to Council twice a year for tile approvals, so expect the process to take a minimum of 6 months.
