Identifying Historic Properties

The agency identifies the historic properties that could be affected.

The agency gathers information to decide if any properties in the area that may be affected by the project are listed, or are eligible for listing, in the National Register of Historic Places.

If no historic properties are present, or if those present will not be affected by the project, the review may conclude here.


Have any historic properties been identified?
Yes, at least one historic property was identified.
If at least one historic property is found that could be affected by the project, the federal agency must proceed to the assessment of effects. The agency must notify all consulting parties and invite their views.
No historic property was identified.
The federal agency documents its finding, seeks the concurrence of the SHPO/THPO in a 30-day review period, and makes information available to consulting parties and the public.
The Section 106 process concludes.
