The mission of the commisssion is to ensure that the arts and history are valued as an integral part of Hailey and to enhance the culture of the Hailey community by providing leadership, advocacy and support for the arts and history.


The Hailey Historic Preservation Commission was first formed in March 2005, and the Hailey Arts Commission was formed in April 2006.  These commissions worked separately until 2013, when they merged by ordinance to form the Hailey Arts and Historic Preservation Commission (HAHPC).
