Members of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation met via Zoom on July 29, 2021, for their summer business meeting. The audio of the proceedings is now available.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) last week sent letters to U.S. House of Representatives leadership and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, which convey the ACHP’s support for provisions of the Save Oak Flat Act. Oak Flat is a place of profound religious and cultural importance to multiple Indian tribes that would be substantially damaged by the proposed Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and the Resolution Copper Project. The letters also were shared with the Secretary of Agriculture and others in the Congress and the Administration.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation will host its next business meeting on Thursday, July 29, 2021, from 1:30 p.m.– 4 p.m. EDT. Due to continuing COVID-related precautions, the meeting will take place using Zoom conferencing. There will be no in-person attendance and, due to technical limitations, only ACHP and ACHP members and staff will be able to watch live. However, a recording of the meeting will be posted on the ACHP website and the ACHP YouTube Channel when the proceedings conclude.
The agenda is as follows:
President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate Sara Bronin as Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) chairman. Read the White House announcement.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation is now recruiting for two positions within the ACHP’s Office of Federal Agency Programs (OFAP), located in Washington, DC. The OFAP plays a key role in meeting the ACHP’s mission to advise the President and Congress on historic preservation matters, and oversees the Section 106 review process.
