Meeting the Reasonable and Good Faith Standard in Section 106 Review


Experienced Section 106 practitioners will benefit from this opportunity to explore the steps necessary to make a reasonable effort to identify historic properties for a specific undertaking and to carry out such identification efforts in good faith. Join Tom McCulloch, Senior Archaeologist and Assistant Director in the Office of Federal Agency Programs, and Kelly Fanizzo, Associate General Counsel, to learn about this regulatory standard while practicing its application to case scenarios.

Planning to Involve the Public in Section 106 Reviews


The views of the public are essential to informed federal decision making in the Section 106 process. The level and type of public involvement in a case will vary depending upon specific factors and should be integrated with other environmental review processes like NEPA. Program Analysts Christopher Daniel and Chris Wilson will review the requirements and considerations in the Section 106 regulations and explain examples of best practices. Participants will identify appropriate public involvement techniques in case scenarios.

So you think you need a PA...


Many federal land management units – including bases, campuses, buildings, forests, and parks – benefit from Section 106 Programmatic Agreements that establish efficiencies for routine projects and maintenance, repair, and operations activities. In this webinar, Program Analysts Katharine Kerr and Chris Daniel will identify the pros and cons of pursuing such a PA and provide practical advice to program managers on how to develop one.
