Home Section 106 Success Stories
The Section 106 process can result in great success with projects large and small. Consultation is a hallmark of the process. Read the Section 106 Success Stories below and learn how to nominate a worthy case for a spotlight story:
We want to hear from you about your favorite Section 106 success story! The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is preparing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) in 2016. An important part of this celebration will include the collection of “106 Success Stories” that illustrate how Section 106 of the NHPA has been used to engage people in the discussion about protecting historic properties that matter most to them. These stories will provide examples of how federal agencies have used the Section 106 process to protect historic properties, improve federal planning, and raise awareness of the benefits of historic preservation.
The 106 stories will be used individually and as part of a collection to explain the benefits of this important program to the public, elected officials, federal agencies and preservation partners. The ACHP plans to gather and publish these stories on a regular basis, leading up to a final product that will be released in conjunction with the NHPA’s 50th anniversary.
The success of the Section 106 process depends on the actions and involvement of many, and that is why we need to hear from you. Additional information that may be of use in developing your nomination can be found here. Please send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
