Vice Chairman’s Welcome and Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) today released a report presenting the findings of the Leveraging Leveraging Federal Historic Buildings ReportFederal Historic Buildings Working Group, which spent the last year identifying ways to advance utilization of the nation’s historic federal buildings through outleasing.

On April 3, 2020, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation issued a blanket extension regarding the review under 36 CFR 800.12 of undertakings responding to COVID-19 emergency and disaster declarations. Four extensions were issued, the fourth of which was set to expire on March 31, 2021. Considering the likelihood of such declarations remaining in place into the foreseeable near future, and the ongoing need for federal agency responses to them, that extension is now set to expire on May 31, 2021.

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Vice Chairman Rick Gonzalez today sent a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack with the ACHP’s final comments and recommendations regarding the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Tonto National Forest’s (TNF) Section 106 review for the proposed Resolution Copper Project and Southeast Arizona Land Exchange. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties and provide the ACHP a reasonable opportunity to comment.

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) oversees a key federal environmental review created by the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966. Known as Section 106 review, it ensures federal agencies consider impacts to historic properties during the development of federal or federally-assisted projects.
