WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) announced Historic Ashe Hospital in Jefferson, North Carolina, as the recipient of the 2020 ACHP/HUD Secretary’s Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) today announced the findings of a task force working to promote the development of a robust workforce in the skilled preservation trades.
JACKSONVILLE, FL – ACHP Chairman Aimee Jorjani and ACHP Vice Chairman Rick Gonzalez today toured the Union Terminal Warehouse project in Jacksonville, Florida, located in one of 21 Duval County-designated Opportunity Zones. Originally constructed in 1913, work is underway to turn the former warehouse into a mix of apartments, commercial space, maker/artist studios, and restaurants.
This project marks the first time in the state of Florida to pair use of the Federal Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit (HTC) with Opportunity Zone incentives. At approximately 330,000 square feet, it is the largest project in Florida approved for the HTC.
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.
The ACHP is pleased to announce it is now recruiting for the position of Program Analyst/National Park Service (NPS) Liaison (GG-13) within the ACHP’s Office of Federal Agency Programs (OFAP), Washington, D.C. The program analyst will serve as the ACHP’s second liaison to the NPS. While the initial appointment will be for a term of 12 months, the position is likely to continue well beyond 12 months.
