The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) has decided to decline to comment on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) request for the ACHP to issue a Program Comment to address collocations of wireless equipment on “twilight towers.”

These towers, constructed between March 16, 2001, and March 7, 2005, cannot be documented to have undergone the required review under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. FCC proposed following its 2001 Programmatic Agreement for collocations on “twilight towers,” but this proposal did not address the lack of Section 106 review at the time of the original tower construction.

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. Two extensions were issued, the second of which was set to expire on September 30, 2020. 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 December 31, 2020.
