Preservation Action Expresses Objections to Proposed Rule Changes to the National Register of Historic Places

From Preservation Action:

This week Preservation Action met with the Office of Information & Regulatory Affairs to express our concerns about the proposed rule changes to the National Register of Historic Places. The National Park Service is moving closer to finalizing rule changes to the National Register of Historic Places that will have a significant impact on how properties are nominated to the National Register and determined eligible, despite significant opposition. During the meeting Preservation Action objected to several rule changes including provisions that would essentially give federal agencies a veto power over National Register and historic district nominations, as well as changes that would allow large landowners to have an outweighed ability to block historic district nominations. We were pleased to be joined by Frank Quinn with Heritage Ohio who spoke about how these changes would impact local projects and main streets across Ohio.

The National Park Service first proposed these rule changes to the National Register in early 2019 and the preservation community responded with an outpouring of comments expressing their concern. In total over 3,000 comments were submitted, the vast majority opposing the changes. Preservation Action submitted comments, specifically highlighting 7 ways the proposed revisions would impact local communities, and encouraged others to submit comments as well.

The rulemaking is currently under it's final review by the Office of Information & Regulatory Affairs (OLIRA) at the White House's Office of Management and Budget. A final rule could be issued as early as January. There's still time for interested parties to request a meeting with OLIRA to discuss concerns about the National Register rulemaking during this final review stage. Submit your meeting request today and reference RIN 1024-AE49.
