National Historic Preservation Act's Section 106 and How It Works
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to consider the effects of their projects on historic properties. This presentation will provide an overview of the Section 106 process and what it means for historic resources and how the public can participate. Section 106 practitioners from the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, Maine Department of Transportation, and Kleinfelder, a consulting firm, will discuss their experiences working on projects that require Section 106 review around the State of Maine.
The presenters will take questions at the end.
This event will be recorded and the recording will be shared with all registrants, regardless of whether or not they attended.
